I became a caregiver because it gave me a sense of life accomplishment, I wasn't doing it as just another job. I love talking to my residents and engaging in learning new things. I am a very laid back person and I have noticed a lot of my patients appreciate that about me. My biggest achievement in life is overcoming stage four grey-area lymphoma. I had grey area which meant that I had Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin at the same time. But I overcame it I have been doing care now for almost 5 years.

Hello My experience comes from my family.When Grandpa was still with us he had many medical difficulties.While my grandma can handle what life throws at her I was one of the few there at moment to assist.From doctors appointments to in home.Grandpa was on kidney dialysis which requires a machine to be used at home.In a since I was a nurse.giving meds and hooking to machine.anything and anytime for them.havent had professional paid experience.Not only do I assist with people but animals as well.To help another is a silent award that can bring a smile to not only yourself but the client as well.knowing that they just might feel better from getting care or someone just being there is payment in itself.My other grandma dealt with depression and Parkinson's.watching that disease take over and make her suffer taught me to enjoy and appreciate family and the finer things we are blessed with.
