Have you ever given care to a person who could not take care of themselves?
Have you been caregiver for a person and written about what you learned?
A baby ? I think i cared for my baby (a person ?) when he could not take care of himself. Then my hubby when he met with a bad accident and could not take care of him.
I did not write any hub on that but i learned a lot.
For five years I cared for a young man who had been in a car accident and suffered a closed head injury.
I do it 30 hours every week. It's my job to take care of (mostly) elderly in their homes. And I have two small children to take care of too.
I dont remember person as not one in number. it happens sometimes that when i am passing by and any person needs some kind of help like an old age person needs help while crossing road or such i stop there and help them immediately. however i never like to ask their name or build more rapport until they ask me about my self. Being human i believe its my moral responsibility. nothing much to say.
good answer. I think you have a lot to say.
Thank you for appreciation. i've got a lot more experiences to share but very few words. Thanks again for giving an opportunity to share such experience.
Yes, I have given care to persons who could not take care of themselves. I was a working student when I was in college and took care of 2 small children during day time and studying in the evening. I have given care to an old lovely lady when I was in Ireland as a part time job. I learned a lot from them but I have not written a hub about this job.
Certainly one of the proudest times of my life was when I took care of my ailing mother afer she had a stroke and was sadly no long able to do for herself what she had done all her life.
She had always been an indepedent soul, full of life and vigour, and she brought into this world a number of healthy children of which I was one.
when she became ill I took up to the best of my ability, with the help of nurses at times, her care and until she became some years later, beyond my power to help her she eleced to go to the Nursing Home where I visited as regularly as I could, in addition to having her live with me in my apartment on all weekends and long holidays.
Some people might say it should have fallen to a womann to take care of her, but I have no doubts that if I had not risen to the challenge myslef she would not have had all the many years extra-life she experienced--having her son as her caregiver meant the world to her...and certainly it was a priviledge extraordinaire for me.
When you truly love someone, as I loved my mother, there is NOTHING you will not do for them within your power. That is my firmly held belief.
Thank you for asking this question and allowing me an opportunity to share this memory with everyone who may identify with it themselves.
Yes I have cared for seniors for years but I haven't written about that yet, but thanks for the idea.
I also was a nanny when I was younger. From the time I was 9-19 I babysat for local neighbors.
Nope. I've learned to dislike and stay away from them. If they don't care about themselves, they will not care about those around them either.

when you get married isn't it a moral obligation to your spouse to at least try to take care of yourself: dress, diet, exercise, making an effort to look good?
