During the summer of 2017, I decided to help my mother with caregiving for one of her elderly clients she worked for. This was my first time becoming a caregiver but I caught on very fast especially since my mother was a longtime nurse. I loved caring and helping my client with things he could not do such as bathe , cook , clean or walk by hisself. I personally loved being able to make my client happy and given him someone to talk too, also letting him know he was not alone everyday . My client fell very ill a couple months after I started working with him and had to be placed on hospice . I cared for my client up until the day he moved on to a new life. I am very proud to say that it was a blessing caring for a person whom I was not apart of his family but made me feel as so.
