I became a caregiver because I was a housekeeper at the job Hanford nursing and rehabilitation center tthat I currently am working for now and as I would be cleaning residents rooms they always would ask for help. My having no experience I wasn't able to help lay elders down or do other things they asked so it would break my heart so I decided to go to school and the day I graduated and started as a Cna mmy life changed and so did the elders I love my job and what I do. I love seeing the smile on the residents that I take care of I am able to help them in any way I can. My personal achievement is graduating from Cna school and being able to do what I know love on a daily basis. I am 29 yes old and love working with and for people I am a sweet young lady and work hard as I can for my 5 children.
