    Hiya, I am a retired educator, home owner, looking to be useful. Have of late been a live in nanny for girl child for 6 years. ( aged 6 thru 11). Heard of 'Home Instead' via TV ad. My care experience also involved tending to my mother. She was a cardio patient, living alone. In addition to, medical appts help with food prep, transportation to shopping, home help with showers, company with cognitive activities : word games, discussion of current news, opportunities to tell her tales of her youth. letter writing to friends..... whatever she asked for. In winter we walked (off hours) at the mall, stopped for a lunch, or toured the shoe stores she so enjoyed. In the springtime garden shops were her meanders. Small town, church lady often attended parrish events. Having no children of my own, I shared experiences of my 30+ years of working with middle school children.

    I have working with the elderly and young for 23 years and I love what I do. I have always treated people the way that I want to be treated because you never know when the shoe may be on the other foot. Just remember it could be your family member one day.

    The video was great. I have been caring for the elderly for many many years from grandparents, aunts & uncles, to mother-in-law and both parents, as well as those in facilities and their own homes. Each time I do this, I learn something new. One thing for sure, I will always treat them the way I would want to be treated, with much dignity and respect. Sincerely, Carolyn
