Re: Thoughts on elderly caregivers

I'd say it depends on the 78 year old.

If she can easily take care of kids and elderly people, more power to her! I'm in my 50's and I couldn't do it. LOL. If she wants to do it and is able to do it, I don't see a problem with it.

I do some volunteer work in an assisted living facility, and there is one older woman (probably in her 70's) who was a caregiver for a man in his 90's until he died, and now is a caregiver for a man in his upper 90's/early 100's. I can't say I don't hold my breath whenever the man stands up and starts to tip over, but she always manages to steady him. She's good at what she does, and I'm glad she does it.
