My name is Whitney and I have been a caregiver to the elderly for more than 12 years. Of course there is a lot of sadness and heartbreak that seem to come hand in hand with any kind of nursing career, but there is plenty of comedy as well.
While this blog is a compilation of several different lovable folks that I have cared for over the years, the stories are embellished for narrative effect, and therefore any similarities to actual people or places are almost (but not entirely) coincidental.
I should also add for good measure that:
The names have been changed to protect the innocent.
Welcome to the world of in-home care.
Welcome to my world.
Whitney, I hope you’ll keep posting.
Thanks for your follow and I’m looking forward to reading more of your posts. Caregivers need humor to balance out the other stuff.
I just nominated you for an “I am part of the WordPress family” award! You can read about the award at http://21stcenturyrenaissancegirl.wordpress.com/2013/07/15/i-am-part-of-the-wordpress-family/. Enjoy!
