I became a caregiver at 18 years old, with my mother, who was also employed as a caregiver. I like being a caregiver because I like helping and taking care of all kinds of people. My personal achievement, since being a caregiver is I saved 2 lives from choking on food. One was elderly and the other was a 50 yr old man. I have been a caregiver for seniors and the disabled for over 15 years, I get along with the families as well. I took care of my mother when she died 3 yrs ago with cancer. I am very compassionate towards everybody.
