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. Bein g 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. ... more
