More Caregivers You Might Like
After giving up my medical secretary career years ago to raise our children, I found a great pleasure in companionship with seniors. Due to his job, my husband traveled a lot. My neighbor, an elderly man, lost his wife but wanted to stay in his own home. I began by playing cards, chatting, teaching him laundry skills, cleaning his house bi-monthly and found it not only was good for him but also beneficial to me. The ability to be a part of his happiness in his dy to day life, felt great. I then was hired by Home Instead in Mason Ohio, working for them until my husband was transferred to Tennessee. Being a part time senior caregiver has been my life now for almost eight years. Have had background checks, TB tests yearly,fingerprinted, drug tested and trained in transfers. Last December became ill with pneumonia from flu, even though had flu shot in September. Have doctors appointment June 10 to be released to work again. We are empty nesters, with youngest in medical school. Fully believe our seniors still have a lot to offer society even tho their bodies are slowing down.
I never thought about being a caregiver. But I was asked by a friend if I could spend some time and help out with her Grandmother. I had no experience in this area, but I instantly fell in love with my "client". In the beginning, she was able to do some things for herself, even with the dementia.She enjoyed being on the front porch, even though when we got back in the house, she wouldn't remember it. She loved spraying herself off after a shower. And she loved her ice cream. But as time went on she got weaker and weaker. When she was ill enough to be put in a nursing home for more intense care, I decided that this was something I was good at and enjoyed doing. So I went to school to obtain my CNA license. When my "little lady" was returned home, it was just a matter of keeping her comfortable. But she was still in good spirits. I wasn't there the day she passed, because my Dad passed the day before. Working in assisted living was an easier pace, and it seems more attention is paid to the clients. I worked in the Dementia unit which presents it's own set of situations. But the clients I worked for were wonderful people. It wasn't hard to have a smile on my face everyday just being around them, even though some days could be pretty intense. I've always said I would treat any "client", "patient", as family. The way I would take care of my own. And I found that out in Oct of last year, when I was fortunate enough to take care of my own Mother as she struggled with cancer, it was an honor to be with her through her last days. I've held the hand of a few of my "family" of people, including my own Mother as they have left this world. And just knowing that I was able to give them some peace and some comfort to me is what makes me enjoy this job, even with the sorrow that comes with it. I'm looking to have a one on one position. I would like to be close to the Antioch/Brentwood, Tenn area, I just moved here and I'm still getting acquainted with the area.
