Heather’s Bio

I have been a caretaker for my elderly mother who is now 92 years old. For many years while caring for my mother, I was also caring for my disabled husband who is a Vietnam Veteran suffering from PTSD as well as other disabilities.
I am a very loving, compassionate person who has nothing but respect and admiration for our Veterans who have served for our country. Due to the PTSD my husband had a hard time staying married as they couldn't deal with his outbursts etc. caused by PTSD. I am his seventh wife and we have been married 17 years. He now lives in Oklahoma as he wanted to be close to his roots and live out his days hunting and fishing.
As for my mom, she is set in her ways and won't budge from her home. I help her when needed with day to day chores and errands. i do alot of lifting and moving her when we go out or travel. She is still self sufficient in alot of everyday tasks but I help her bathe when needed and do quite a bit of other things to make her comfortable and able to live happily in her own home. I run alot of errands for her but when she is up to it, we go out to eat or do some shopping. Sometimes, she just wants to go for a drive to get out of the house.
My training is through personal experience. I was a pre school teacher at one time which prompted me to learn CPR. i am very responsible and my heart is in the right place.
I am up to any challenge and always available.
