My name is Amanda Horgan, and I have about four and half years experience with the elderly. I took nursing my junior and senior year of high school and we went out to different nursing homes and to some hospitals caring for the elderly, I was awarded my CNA at graduation. I let my CNA go because I prefer to be more of a companion to the elderly then to care for them medically. Throughout the two years of going out to the nursing homes i began to learn that most of the elderly were lonely and just wanted someone to talk to and sit with, and I love doing that. Its so facinating learning about their lives and the struggles they went through. It makes you take a step back and enjoy life.
I also have an 83 year old grandmother who I help. I bring her to her doctor appointments, do her grocery shopping, set up her pills, do puzzles with her, prepare meals for her. I love her to pieces. I spend alot of time with her. She has the beginning onset of dementia, she has hearing and eye sight problems, she's a diabetic, she has bad knees so she uses a walker, and she has had a stroke in the past. So you can say just through her i have learned alot, and i have alot of experience helping elderly with alot of health problems.
