Summary

I Retired after 40 plus years in nursing. After being active in nursing for that length of I started to suffer from severe boredom.

One of my best friends whom was also retired suggested that I try Caregiving, a few days a week as an end to my boredom. As she explained, I could still interact with, monitor clients health status, and assist elderly clients in the home who desire to remain independent and live in the community. And doing this all on my schedule.

She was right, and I really enjoy this phase of patient care. No Stress!
