I guess I have always been a caregiver. Being the oldest of four I loved helping my mother with my brothers and sister. As I got older I helped take care of my grandma then when my mother got Alzheimer's I was there to help. I love making a difference in someones life. Making new friends and hearing all the stories from the old days. I'm good at helping Seniors that are confused with a situation. I'm very proud of my two kids. My daughter Jessica 30, She works for the Post office and Tutors special needed kids. My son Jay 30, works at a Restaurant and goes to school part time. I have been a caregiver for over 25 years. This past year and a half I have been helping my friend Jenny start her mornings. She is 30 and has Cerebral Palsy. I live in Lake Hughes with my boy friend of 10 years. I belong to our women's Club and we make bed quilts, Lap Blankets and Turtle pillows for THE PAINTED TURTLE. Its a camp for kids that are sick and it was started by actor Paul Newman.
