I started providing care when I was just a teenager. My grandfather became ill and was diagnosed with cancer. He had always been my hero so of course seeing that he was cared for properly was a given. I am what some people refer to as an old soul, I love to listen to the stories of the older generation and how things were when they were growing up. It's a good way to understand history. In my opinion the world today and the younger generation don't appreciate the lessons and memories that can be shared by the people who lives were a part of the world we live in today. That's why I think my greatest achievement in life is the fact that I still make it a point to be friends with the elderly people in my neighborhood and visit with them as often as I can.
