I am a very patient person, especially when it comes to working with the elder or special needs. What attracted me the most to being a caregiver is the fact that, at the age of 12 I was helping with medication reminders for my grandfather. I went to Dr.'s appointments with him and my mother. I would take his blood pressure and blood sugar. Unfortunately he suffered from Alzheimer's disease, he passed away when I was 17. I grew very fond from that experience I had with my grandfather. I realized that is something I would see myself doing for a very long time. One thing I enjoy the most about being a caregiver is my residents "Thank you". The joy and happiness they have when you assist them with a simple task. Personal achievement I am proud of is enrolling back in school, greatest accomplishment. Currently attending BAHU for EKG Technichian.
