I became a caregiver because 5 years ago i visted a family friend in a nursing home and witnessed some of the mistreatment the elderly were endoring. Ever since that day I knew i had to become a CNA/caregiver to try and make a difference in the lives of elderly, thru nursing facilities, hospitals, and in there own homes. How thankful and appreciative my clients are make me love my job that much more. Im the oldest of seven children, Ive been caring for and helping people all my life. I want to become a registered nurse in the future.
