About eight years ago I moved in with my 89 year old grandmother to help with light housework and errands. She was still able to cook at the time but quickly lost that ability. In May of 2008 she fell and could no longer be left alone so my parents moved in with us as my dad's health left him unable to drive but function very well otherwise. My mom retired in December of 2008 to help take care of them and in June of 2009 I lost my job and became the in home caregiver for my family as my dad's health was failing; he passed in july of 2009, and in September of 2009 my mom found out her kidneys were failing. She passed in May of 2010, leaving me to care for my grandmother who was now 94 and had Alzheimer's. When she passed in May of 2011 I told myself I was done with caring for people who were sick but recently I have been brought back in to the fold by helping out with a few friends and family who needed help so I am now here looking to help someone else. I used to think I wanted to be a day care teacher and was for a while but this is more my speed and just as rewarding.
