Caregiving Story

Jack Barnes, My Dad

Location:Homestead, FL
Cared for by:Patty Barnes
Years of Care:1


My father was my best friend. I took over his air charter operation after Hurricane Andrew, just to keep him flying. After a mild heart-attack, he had a major stroke and could never speak again. I took care of my Dad for 3 months in hospice until he died peacefully in my arms. I felt his spirit leave his body. Also, felt my friend Gigi's spirit leave her at her death bed.

Six months later I took care of my grand-father for 4 months in hospice care. (92 years old). Bright, articulate...

I feel that I have the love and compassion for Hospice or Elder Care. I'm very spiritual and caring.

I'm moving to Dothan in July and looking for a new start my myself & 9 year old daughter.
