An only child, I cared for both my parents until their death; dad when I was 27, mom when 46. I know the needs of the elderly intimately. Mom had been sick since before I was born. She had been given last rites at age 3, had 16 major surgeries and lived in a Sanatorium throughout her childhood. She lived until 84. I nursed her through hospice myself. My father got sick with a rare brain disease when I was 17 and I nursed him for 10 years. I used to work for a private nursing home while in college. I went on to study medicine. My father was extremely sick and while caring for him, I graduated with psychology degree instead to understand his brain. I love also the stories. The elderly need to tell theirs. I am adept at recording those stories for their families as well as offering a listening ear. Shut-ins need just a moment of care to last them a full day. I love offering what I can.
