About Keith

My interest in becoming a caregiver started prior me leaving the military. I won't get into the details, but I had a lot of friends I wished I could have helped. A year or so after getting out, I did run into a friend needing help. I wanted to give him the best care I could give. I started reading books on his illness, I was going to the hospital asking questions, Finally, I went to school. I became a Certified Nurse Assistant and a Certified Home Health Aide. At the time, my only interest was helping my friend. I wanted him to know someone would be with him till the very end. During training at some of the Care Facilities, I was sadden that the residents didn't received more than the facility was not able to give. Like more feeding time, more grooming time and time spent on chatting etc. I like the my resident to know that when I present, I'm there for them.
