I started caregiving 2 years ago with no experience . I was scared I wouldn't be good, but majority of the women in my family are in this field so I decided to give it a shot. I never knew I'd be so good at it. I fell in love. This job is so rewarding and I get to come in contact with all walks of life. In just 2 years I'm proud to say I have experience with dementia and Alzheimer's, stroke patients, gtube, bed bound, diabetic, and Even patients who just want companionship.
