I am currently working as a Private Caregiver with this 96 years old customer, caring for her at her own house.
Mrs. Alejandra Luzardo contacted me to care for her 87 years old father who was in that moment at a Physical Therapy Facility in DC due to a fall he had previously, he was making little progress and going into a deep depression because of his impossibility of going back home, not being able to communicate because he could only speak in Spanish and there was only two persons who could understand him, I started going to the PT Facility just to give him companion and talk him into help the PT to help him get back to walk so he could go back home; it only took him 3 weeks to walk with a walker and go back home to his family, after that I kept going to the house every other day to help him with his exercises, take him to his doctor's appointments (he had a diagnose of Prostate Cancer).
