Music investor and socialite, Aisha Modi, sheds more light on her career as a live-in caregiver and certified nursing assistant in the United States.
Aisha said she has a license to give shots to patients to help them die slowly with the consent of the family and a doctor’s prescription.
Aisha Modi said that in most cases, her services are often utilized after the doctor declares that the ‘suffering elderly patient’ has little time to live.
He said there are times when elderly patients struggling with acute illnesses request to be taken through this process.
Stating that she has been in this profession for 14 years, Aisha said that she has given death shot to around 200 patients.
“There are some patients who have a limited time on earth. Maybe a week or two. I have a license to administer the shot that will facilitate their death. There are patients who want to die, so in this case, we give them morphine. This puts them to sleep and kills them slowly. For patients who smoke, their lungs are not working properly at some point so it helps to breathe properly. If patients don’t have food and water for about two days and you give them morphine, they die very quickly. I have a license to do all that. I upgraded from just living-in to being a nursing assistant, so I was able to do everything. Families call me after announcing that their parents are going to die in three months. I have done this work for 14 years and I have facilitated the death of nearly 200 patients. My last patient who died before I came to Ghana left me a check and three gold chains.
“You can’t do this job if you don’t have empathy. Because you have to treat someone’s family like your own property. I have benefited a lot from it. I have a friend who was married to her patient and after his death, the property was willed to her. I have about five gold chains gifted to me by my patients,” he said in an interview monitored by Ghanaweb.
While making all these statements, Aisha Modi picked up her phone and showed the camera pictures of her patients lying on their deathbeds.
Although host Kofi Adoma instructed his videographers not to focus on images that could violate privacy, Aisha Modi insisted on capturing it.
“The family has empowered me so you can capture it,” he said.
Revealing how lucrative the business is, Aisha said, “I have a license as a nursing assistant and I can work in hospitals but I prefer live-in. Because I earn more money than those who work in hospitals. People in this profession are very rich. They can afford houses and everything they need so I have my place in New York. I earn in a week as much as my mother earns in a month. I make $500 a day and more. My mother in the same profession has a house in Atlanta Georgia. If you don’t have papers you can’t do this job.
