I have a lady that comes here from Council on Aging. She comes every Wednesday, and she is the greatest that I have ever had. She comes one day a week on Wednesday. I have two and a half hours with her, and she does more in that two and a half than others do in a week. She doesn’t ask a lot of questions, where is this, what’s this, what do you want me to do, where you want to put this; she just gets right with it. There are different people -- some know how, some don’t know how -- and she does know how. She sweeps, mops, and does not allow dust. She doesn’t help giving me a bath -- they have people that do -- but when I was on hospice, I couldn’t have two people doing the same thing or something like that; I don’t know what it is.
The reason I am rating them highly was that the first day she came here, I said “Jackie I got something I got to tell you. You really got all your ducks in a row." She asked what I was talking about after I asked if she really knew how to help a handicapped person and she said she had training. I knew that there was something about that woman that other people didn’t have. It wasn’t with Council on Aging that I got my training; she said she had a job when she was in Massachusetts where they were in a wheelchair for about a month to see what they could do in a wheelchair, then they blindfolded them to see what it would be like be a blind person, and then she said they did something to see what they could do with a lot of apparatus hands and arms; I don’t know what else she said, but I could tell she is a great person.
