About Mark

I became a caregiver because I am very compassionate and caring. The thing that I enjoy most about being a caregiver is that everyday you face a different challenge. I have been caring for an 88 year old lady for the past 3+ years. She is amazing!!. The stories that our elderly have to share are incredible, when you think of what they have been through. One achievement that I am extremely proud of is the schooling that I went through to get my "State Of Arizona"- License & Certification to become a state approved caregiver/manager. With Joyce, since she has advanced Renal Kidney Failure/Dementia, I am proud of the fact that I am able to get her to go to dialysis 3 times a week. By Friday she tells me I am not going. I tell her that is fine, but she will not have the energy on the weekend for us to go shopping and out to eat. One thing about myself is that I am very ambitious, and I don't take no for an answer if it is for my patients own good. I figure out another way of getting the end result, which is all that I care about.
