I became a Caregiver for my mother after her TIA stroke in 2001. I found it to be very rewarding in our relationship, becoming great friends. I enjoy being able to make a difference in one's daily quality of life and reaffirming their worth and value as an individual. As a Caregiver for a family, I was able to care for their loved one while they went on vacation for 1 week . They said they had such a peace of mind, knowing that I was caring for their mother and didn't have to worry. In my earlier years I was not always dependable, but grew in character as a Caregiver to esteem others and be re liable. As a Caregiver I am able to nurture someone without a condescending demeanor and give a listening ear with compassion and understanding. ... more
