I became a caregiver due to having a passion to help people who couldn't help them self and to help family member that needs care for there special someone that they couldn't due to work and wearing out. I love being a caregiver because when I am done for the day I feel good that I have done something for that special person. I am very proud of myself for being in this work for 30 years. I am always told that I am their angel for taking good care of their special someone. I have seen a lot and also learned a lot in my many years of caregiving. I am a very sweet woman, always in a good mood never show if something with me is going on. I moved to Phoenix 6 years ago last October. I have two sons and 3 grandchildren from my eldest boy. They all live back East. I moved here due to divorce and my mother, brothers, and sister live here. I have a lot of good friends that I had to say goodbye to. I miss my grandsons dearly. I hope to go back next year to love them up to hold me for a couple of years.
