I started out as a Mental Health worker. As a mental Health worker, I was extensively trained to work with elderly, adults,and adolescence. Of those five years, I realized that I really enjoyed caring for the elderly. When my mother became very ill, I took my experiences and took care of her. I knew that this was what I wanted to do. We will all grow older, and we will need someone to love and care for us. I am strong, loving, caring, most of all understanding and patient. It is a humbling experience. . I promise to care for your family member as I would my own, and that's saying alot..I have been very fortunate to care for these beautiful souls, and has learned alot from them, most people will never experience this journey. It takes a special kind of person to do this type of work, and I am one of these people. I have 11 yrs experience.
