I became a caregiver because I had found my life's passion and calling working with the elderly as a CNA for 5 yrs in a longterm nursing facility. I left that position to raise my boys and to further my education. As life would have it I let my CNA license lapse so now being ready to reenter the nursing field unlicensed I found equal enjoyment working with the elderly in the caregiver, therapy assistant role. I currently do just that with a company that serves the veteran's administration although I have relocated to San Bernardino and am seeking work closer to home.
