I became a caregiver back in the late nineties. I cared for my landlords wife. I loved listening to her stories of her childhood and coming of age. Careing for her was just like hanging out with my grandmother. I've taken on many other positions since and loved each and ever one. I love listening to the stories the older clients tell, getting the mentally challenged ones to tie his or her own shoe, to lightening a physically disabled persons day by getting them to look on the brigjter side of the situation no matter how small it may be. I love helping people and feel my energy and efforts make a huge impact in the lives of my clients and their families.
