About Nikki

Why did I become a Caregiver? I became a Caregiver because my Mother became very ill. She had 6 children. I am number #2. My Dad had taken care of her as long as he could (6) years. The family ask me to do it. It was an honor to care for my Mother for 9 months. I learned so much. What do I like about being a Caregiver? Well, you can't just say you want to be a Caregiver for someone. Your personality and their personality have to fit in order for things to go smoothly. In order for that to happen takes something on both parts. The person you are caring for have to be humble and appreciative the same as the caregiver. They have to let you Love them. If the patient has mistaken ideas about the caregiver on first glance, it can be difficult. A Person achievement I am proud of. I took care of my Mother, when she was ill. It was an honor. I would not mind experiencing the whole thing again for someone's Mother or parent. I hope someone will love me THAT much when I get to that point. Everyone said I did a good job. It was a good feeling. Tell us something about yourself. I'm honest and I tell the truth. I want the same in return. Even if the truth hurts. It saves everyone time.
