I care for a recovering cancer patient who cannot do anything for herself. I bathe her, I feed her by mouth (recently removed feeding tube) transfer, diaper change, rotate her to avoid bed sore, oral and personal hygiene, groom, take her to the doctors, we used to go out to eat or walk to the park but she no longer can do those things

Why did I become a caregiver? I became a caregiver because of my desire to help others especially the elderly. My passion and dedication for seniors is very important to me. Nothing brings me great pleasure in assisting people that are in need of some care. My greatest achievement in life are my children. I am a mother of four and a grandmother of six. Teaching my children to respect and help others gives me the satisfaction that when in some giving time I need help, they will assist me just like I assist and care for others in the same manner. I'm not just a caregiver but a friend and if God gave me the patience, understanding and caring way to help others than I am here for that. God bless you and hope to assist anyone in need.
