About Mary

I was raised by my grandparents, so I am an "old soul". I have been doing caregiving on and off since January 2000. I relate well with the elderly. They have a wealth of knowledge and experience. We both benefit by learning from each other. Realizing I make a difference in someone's life by simply just being there for them is the BEST part of being a caregiver. Last month I filled in for a caregiver at the home of a gentleman with suicidal tendencies. It can be exhausting and overwhelming trying to remind, re-orient, and reminisce positively with someone of this sort, but within a couple hours of my shift, this man was grateful I was there for companionship. Otherwise, he was thinking about suffocating himself. He asked for me to come back. If his regular caregiver wasn't going to be there, I would have revisited.
