I am currently a Caregiver for my 79 year old Mother. When Mother suffered her stroke in 2009. I read so many books related to her stroke to make myself more aware of her illness. I asked Mother to move in with my husband and I so I can care for her 24/7. Mother is always included in whatever we plan. Since then Mother has been doing much better. Although she was recently diagnosed with Slight Dementia. Its not too serious yet. But having her with us is a blessing. I do cook, clean, wash, and help Mother with Bathe (if needed). I am a people person. I used to work as a retail Clerk. Prior to that I was a Manager for an Apartment Community for 15 Years. I quit my job to care for Mother full time. Doctor says she does require full time care giving. Mother used to be a caregiver. Later she had to quit her job to care give for my late Father for 18 years before he passed away in 2006. I feel my care giving is from background gene. Mother and I enjoy doing things together. I hope to include her with me when assisting a Client. It will be so much enjoyment to see her meet new friends while at same time I am helping with their needs.
