I am a very outgoing, fun, and caring individual. I would treat your loved one as my own due to my grandmothers passing 4 years ago. At the time I had taken some time off of school to go and help my grandmother when her heart was only working 10%, i would give her sponge baths twice a day, change her if/when needed, give her the proper medication at the amount that the doctor prescribed, at the time she wasn't able to properly consume food (liquid diet which i would prepare all foods/liquids), i would like to include that i would read to her for 2 hours a day (her favorite author Stephen King), any little physical activity she was able to do or that the doctor would recommend. I enjoy being a caregiver because it helps me to connect with the person one on one and see where they are coming, give them companionship, and to show them that people care. My biggest achievement would be that i was in the United States Air Force which i was medically discharged 2 1/2 years later due to being diagnosed with epilepsy and seizures. You're thinking how can she take care of my loved one, well i take medication that helps me prevent them from happening.
