Wanted: Caregiver

It’s sad to know that while most Filipno caregivers are aiming to go abroad to practice their profession there, a lot of old people need professional caregivers here. Recently, my lola Charing’s husband died (tito Danny) so we had to temporarily adopt her so we can take care of her in our house in Marikina. Lola Charing is my lola’s sister who started to develop Alzheimer since a couple of years ago. My lola used to call her lola “Taba” before. Now, she is hardly that. She cannot take care of herself now and has to be spoon-fed.

We tried finding her a nursing place to stay but there are just too many old people and few caregivers. Whenever we ask, “Kailan po ba magkakaruon nang bakante?”; we always get “… kapag may namatay po”. We were actually supposed to have transferred lola Charing to La Verna (Franciscan sisters) this week, a place that was conveniently near us. But after the ‘mother superior’ discovered that lola Charing could not walk and eat by herself anymore, they had to deny her. She needs a home for the elderly that accepts old people with Alzheimer, and a professional caregiver.

(I am dedicating a special thread on this blog just for my lola Charing. I’ll be blogging her progress and whereabouts. Hopefully this can reach out to relatives.)
