I took care of both my parents during their last years. I drove them to appointments, assisted them with groceries, prepared and served all meals, handled laundry and all other aspects of housekeeping. Once they became homebound, I helped them with some mobility issues.
Additionally, I provided care to my sister while she underwent treatment for breast cancer. This included transportation to and from chemotherapy and radiation appointment, attention to special dietary needs during meal preparation, laundry and grooming.
I am very used to households affected by issues related to aging and illness. While dealing with the care of my parents and my sister, often all at the same time, I also had young children. I know how overwhelming it can be, and how having assistance that you feel confident in can be a lifesaver. I feel that my skills in these areas make me sympathetic to others going through the same transitions.
