How being a live-in carer changed my life is the main topic of this article. This has been a personal experience, but I am sure other’s experiences will be similar to mine. My own son was born at the end of 2021, after which he went into premature labor. His development was so poor that even if he were left in the hold of an elevator for a couple of minutes more, he would still be in a critical condition. I was told by many doctors that he would have to have one of those premature births that no one survived.
My husband and I decided that we were going to make our living as carers from then on. We signed up for a few jobs, but when that didn’t work out, we started looking for something more permanent. I knew that I had to be a live-in carer or I would not be able to afford to pay my bills, because I would have had to find another way to pay them. That meant I would have to quit my job.
So, how has it been? Well, since I am the mother, I have to feed my son as well as help him to go to school. My job has allowed me to buy new clothes for him, but the problem was that he used to go to school while I fed him. I would have to get up very early in the morning, change his clothes and feed him before I could even get dressed. This made me very exhausted at times, and that would take a toll on me physically. Having a live-in carer has certainly helped me to avoid having to deal with the exhaustion that these two factors created.
There are some other great advantages that I have noticed since becoming a live-in carer. My husband is now able to do all of the housework and shopping for us, without me having to lift a finger. We save money because I do not need to buy as many things as I used to. I also do not miss having children at home, because my partner does all of the cooking and shopping for us. It has brought a lot of joy into our lives.
There are some things that I would not have had if I had not become a live-in carer. I would not have been able to keep my hair looking as nice as it has done so. I would not have been able to maintain my figure, as I have now. All of these things were made possible because I got a job as a live-in carer.
There is still a lot that I want to learn. I want to help other women who are going through this transition. I also want to get to know myself better so that I can help others with all of their unique needs. Live-in carers give people the freedom to move on with their lives, making them much more productive in the future. As the years go by, I am sure how being a live-in carer changed my life for the better.
