I took care of my great grandmother who had a stroke then afterwards dementia. I helped with house work, grocery shopping, bathing/dressing, paying bills, and companionship. I looked after her until she was laid to rest in 2014. I then looked after my grandma (Nana) who was bed ridden with arthritis. I prepared food, cleaned house, helped pay bills, grooming, going to the bathroom, grocery shopping, and companionship. I took care of her until earlier this year when she decided to go into an assisted living home. I love working with the older generation, I love hearing their stories and helping out in any way I can. My dream is to one day own my own assisted living facility where patients feel safe and at home.
