I became a caregiver because I learned so much from caring for my dear friend when she got into a car accident, for 9 months I cared for her and cleaned her wounds fed and bathed her, took her to Dr appointments and did everything for her...she ended up passing away due to something inside of her, when she passed apps way I had learned a lot about how to care for someone and I learned that I could actually do it and give my self and care for someone else. I didn't want her death to be in vein so I took up schooling and learned how to be a CNA then got my HHA and started working. I realized that with time I got better and better at it and it came out naturally for me to just care for someone, it was Second nature to me. I love to plan activities and I am very open minded and love to learn from the Patients I have worked with, from almost every culture I learned many things. I love to learn new things and also share what I know that might be interesting to the Patients.
