What is the secret to getting a job for a Senior. I am so frustrated now that I've tried so hard to get one. In a town full of Seniors all I hear is Seniors are being hired. Well I took care of my mother for 20 years as a caregiver I learned how to take care of someone with Alzheimers/Dementia. As she got worse(she became bedbound) things got more difficult and time consuming. I learned to take care of a feeding tube. Most of what I learned was on my own. There was no help when I started to take care of her. A few years later I got some help from Hospice. They should me how to best take care of her. My Mother passed away in July of this year. I started to look for jobs as a caregiver. I found that 20 years experience was not good enough. I can't get hired as a caregiver in this town of Hemet, Calif. I can't even get help or advice. I was told by one of my Doctors that this is not a very charitable town. I believe it now. When my mother died I lost my income, because I was paid for taking care of her. Now I'm losing my home to foreclosure. I am still looking for a job in other places, but to no avail they're just not there. I don't know what to do anymore, I've started to question my abilities. People ask me what can I do and I just stumble sometimes. I guess because I've been turned down so many times. I had a neighbor ask me what I knew more than anything else. I thought for a minute and came up with sewing. I have an AA Degree in Fashion Design and a Certificate in Sewing. I've spent my entire life sewing. So why don't I teach. But not here in Hemet. I don't think people here will appreciate it. So I will try in Temecula, Ca. The Orange County of Riverside. All I can do is try.
