Well hello! 😆 In a nutshell... I am a Mom of two onry boys; Cash is 3, and Dillon who is 10. The two biggest reasons God has put me on this earth are those little turkeys.. As for my career in which I love, I have been caring for mostly Elderly for the past 10 yrs. Some have been anywhere from 22 yrs young, to 101yrs wise! Currently I am so very blessed to be able to care for my Granny, and Get paid to do so. Before it was not possible, but God has made a way for me to care for her every day. I assist her with ADL, which I usually hide that I'm just assisting, and approach it as if I'm just there to help if needed, rather than just trying to take control. I strive with my patients to keep them in good spirits, and although safety is my number one concern, their sense of what little if any independence they do have left is often not as high up there, and it needs to be. My Granny (Basically my Mom, Rock, BFF) is 74. In 2010 she was diagnosed with COPD, but did good for a while. Since then 3 skin cancers, as well as taking on Dementia now, Stints put in her Aeortia, She only has 40% kidney functioning. That's just with my Granny, but I've been blessed with caring for patients suffering from Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson's, Hypertension, companion care for depressed and/or widowed. Also worked with Alzheimer's patients at Grace Home in Dallas. Administer Meds, Ensure my friend (patients) is as comfortable as I would want my granny to be. Bathing, Peri-care, wound-care, Catheters, Assist ADL, IV Phlebotomy, ROM, MEAL preparation, Doctors visits, Shopping, Cleaning, Light Laundry, pet care. I'm a Mom 1st, but God has called me to be a caregiver to more than just my two babies. My patients over the years have made such a big impact on mine as well as my kids lives. There's nothing more Ide rather do. God bless you.
