I became a caregiver because I wanted to help people have a more fulfilling life even if they were ill. I love helping women with their makeup, hair and clothes choices. They always seem to perk up when they see what I've done!!! I'm also a good cook and invent many meals that they normally don't get because the families seem to give them frozen dinners a lot because it's so easy. I try to treat them like they were my grandma asking them to share about their lives and what their accomplishments have been. I feel I'm very easy to talk to and they enjoy my company. The last lady I helped became really close to me and it was so sad when she died. I hope to have clients that are upbeat and really enjoy their helpers.
