I became a caregive because I enjoy helping those in need. I would like to believe that when it comes time that I need someone to care for me it will be someone who will do it with compassion and because it is something they like to do. I cared for both my parents when they were dying of cancer and my father asked me never to place him in a home. I cared for him throughout his 2 year battle of fighting his cancer. I understand the fear he had of being cared for outside of his comfort zone. I was able to give him what he asked for. As for myself I enjoy working with elders and children. I ran a daycare for 15 years while my five children were growing up. I was able to be there for them and take care of other children. When they were graduated and on with there own lives I started to taking care of seniors. I have learned a lot from their words of wisdom they have shared with me.
