Caregiving has been a big part of my life for the past three years. My dad started having Alzheimer's and it turned into dementia. Taking care of him was a full time job, and I helped my mom. I've dressed him, helped him do daily tasks, It takes a lot of patience to be with him.
I feel this experience made me understand what older people go through with this, that it takes a lot of patience to be with people like this. We did have to put him in a nursing home, and when we went to visit, I fed him his meals, helped him go to the bathroom, and helped him get into his chair when he was behind his walker. Patience and tolerance are key ingredients for this type of job, and I feel I have plenty of both.
This kind of job makes me feel good because I know I am helping these people feel better about themselves. It always makes me smile. I've always been an outgoing person, like to be on the go, and love to play cards. I feel I would be a great candidate for this job.
