With over twelve years experience, I am well adjusted to the stress and demands that come with caring after a senior citizen with special needs.
My father has advanced Alzheimer's, and physical disabilities. For over nine years I was his soul and primary caregiver. When caring for my father became physically difficult, I moved on to caring for a wonderful 96 year old with dementia.
I am of a creative mind, and love spending time doing artistic things. I really loved taking my father to parks, public places, and I also like reading to him and encouraging him to paint. My other patient is a true "lady who lunches". Our time is spent enjoying fine dining as well shopping.
Stimuli is important, and with these illnesses it's necessary. It takes a special person to juggle all that is required of a care giver. It's a good thing I'm up for the challenge.
