Before i became a caregiver i was a freelance worker and would do anything to make money to provide for my family. Until one day i came into an Agency in San Francisco and they were hiring for caregivers. I had no experience whatsover but they taught me everything i needed to know to take care of my patient. When my primary patient died due to his sickness, their family personally wanted me to take care of his wife and for 8 years i became part of their family and so did she to our family. To me its not about caregiving, but more of loving and making them smile everyday. After she died, i've decided to go back to school to get a CNA license and was soon employed by a Senior Facility in San Francisco. Within a year of my employment with them, my son was transferred to Southern California for work and i came along with him and now seeking for a new job opportunity.
