Caregiving Story

Barbarra Anne Cooper, My Client

Age:84
Location:Miami, FL
Cared for by:Joycelyn Lopez
Years of Care:1

 

I have to take care of an elderly person who is 84 years old. It has been a wonderful experience. Everyday I help her take a bath and get ready. Also, I prepare her meals and make sure she takes her medicine and her Ensure. I weigh her every week to make sure she is maintaining her weight. I take her to the beauty salon and to do other errands. I give her companionship (we watch TV, talk, read and listen to music). I am always making sure she is happy because when I first began working with her, she had recently lost her husband. She was very sad and lacked an appetite. Now she is doing so much better. I am so proud she calls me her "Beautiful Angel".
