My name is Laura , I became a caregiver ten years ago, when my dad had two strokes. He was unable to move or do anything, it was hard for the family. I started to take care of him because he needed a lot of patience, time and love. I started to noticed how important is to have a person who take care of seniors who needs help. I am that person, I took care of him, I helped him and after two years my dad started to walk and talk, now he is able to do things by himself. I'm so proud of me because I did what a daughter have to do for a parent. Since then I became a caregiver because they are a lot of seniors that they need someone to help them, to take care of them. I'm a lovely person who has patience, who cares about older people, I like to make them laugh and feel comfortable. I enjoy working for them.
