After a 28 year career with a major, international corporation, I spent a year taking care of my Aunt who was dying of terminal lung cancer. I lived with her and took of all of her personal needs including driving her to doctor's appointments, restaurants, movies, shopping, etc... I cleaned house, bought groceries, prepared meals, and did laundry. I worked in coordination with her hospice people to administer her medications, oxygen, and nebulizer treatments. I helped her dress and get in and out of the shower. I am not however, strong enough to lift a person who has fallen. I can assist in getting someone into or out of a vehicle but not lifting them from a wheelchair. I have a valid drivers license and a perfect driving record but the person would have to supply the car, gas, and pay for the insurance. I do this because I realize the difference it can make in someone's life who is old, alone, and frightened just to know that there is someone there. I can work any hours. If it is not a live in assignment, it needs to be reasonably close to Crystal Lake, IL.

Care giving brings me great joy. Healing the world, one person at a time. (Or just making it a little more bearable.)
