How I Started Caring For The Elderly


Ever since I was a little girl I absolutely loved my Grandparents and spent as much time with them as I could. 

I was heartbroken when my Grandfather passed away  in 1990, but I still had my beloved Grandmother who

was in very good health and continued to be a big part of my life as always.

 Around 2000 my usually spry and energetic grandmother started getting weaker and more frail.

It became obvious to the family that she was no longer able to fully care for herself and needed some extra help. 

At first my mom prepared her meals and medication, and helped her with her daily care needs. 

Over time Grandma's need for help slowly grew to the point that my mother enlisted my help in 2002.

 By the fall of 2003 taking care of Grandma became my regular full time job. 

After a while we hired someone to stay with her during the night and a couple more people for daytime help, 

as she needed around the clock supervision and assistance.

 I helped care for grandma, 5-6 days a week for 4 years and I wouldn't trade those years for anything!

 Grandma had bad days where she didn't talk, but on her good days we would spend hours remembering the 

good old days;  when we used to get ice cream cones in her old V-back Riviera or her big gold Cadillac...

 Christmas holiday drives to see Santa at Sandy Pines with all the grand-kids packed in the "Butterscotch Wagon". 

And we listed favorite restaurants that we frequented with Grandpa in his baby blue El Camino. 

 We loved talking about all the fun we used to have, but sometimes it made me cry, knowing our time was short.

Grandma passed away January 7, of 2007 at the age of 93.

  I cherished every moment I spent with her throughout my life.  I still miss her even now

but I am thankful,  I got to spend so much time with her in those last years.

In caring for my grandma, I came to see that there are so many more families that need assistance in caring for their loved ones!

Therefore it has become my mission to provide the best care for my residents

 and give them all the kindness and love they need and deserve.
