I Love Working With the Elderly

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 55 People

    A Young Student Worked For My Parents As An Elderly Helper.

    Hi. As a working mother, I've been looking for a helper for my parents at home. I didn't need a nurse but just an elderly helper. The Almondbury Agency found me a perfect girl. She really helps them with housework, shopping, and everyday stuff ! http://www.elderly-help.co.uk...

    Treasures Of Society

    I used to work as a housekeeper at a nursing home, and it turned out to be one of the most important and life-changing jobs I have ever had. At first, I was hesitant to talk to the patients, because I had fallen victim to several stereotypes of elderly people- that they are...

    My mother-in-law wouldn't use her walker even after a bad fall which resulted in her breaking her arm. My sister and I made a pretty, fitted pillow for hers. She started using it (probably because she felt guilty after we went to so much trouble lol) Soon, she went into assisted...
