I just completed a year of full-time caregiving for my aunt. Unfortunately, her physical demands became too much for an independent living setting and my family moved her to a more capable facility just before Thanksgiving.
My aunt is blind, and in addition struggled with some memory challenges. In caring for her, I cooked, cleaned, ran errands, took her on walks, engaged in conversation, facilitated entertainment in the home (such as books on tape, Ted talks, etc.). We went on outings in the community and participated in events at her independent living community.
I'm in my late 20's and able-bodied, although slight-of-build and probably not well-suited for jobs requiring heavy lifting of individuals.
I am a college graduate, with a BA in Sociology. I have lived all around the country and traveled a fair amount internationally. I enjoy getting to know new people. I am a very clean and organized person, and find joy in being helpful to others.
