Senior caregiving-hospice

Jun 2017 - Sep 2017
Family Employer
I took care of a female in her late 90's for a little over three months before she unfortunately passed away. Starting off my duties were medication dispensing, assisting with bathing, dressing, feeding, and daily chores. Over time her needs became hospice and then I assisted with giving medication to keep her comfortable, taking her vitals, monitoring her oxygen mask needs, and holding her hand.
