Hello women of change-
I am Diane Poole, 61 years old with 3 children/2 grandchildren and 38 years invested in a textile product development career. If we do not choose to change/re-invent ourselves, life will do it for us in un-expected ways.
I am currently searching for appropriate non-profit and for profit avenues to launch a home healthcare,textile product line to help our at home caregivers with feeding, bathing, dressing, and toileting family members, a friend and even caring for an injured pet. The subject matter of drool, urine, feces and food bacteria on clothing, bedding, furniture and car seats is not sleek, shiny, sexy or easy to package. 75% of all caregivers are women, 60% work full or part time. Alzheimer's, stroke, incontinence and life altering accidents affect us all. The subject matter is a tough sell even to AARP who claims their image is travel, athletic activities- not the reality of aging in place at home.
I have a web site www.rxblendables.com
. Please take a look , comment and if you have thoughts regarding the labor of love of at home health care.
. Also, please let me know what you are doing.
I look forward to hearing from you, Diane
