I originally became a caregiver because my father became sick, so I cared for him, at the end of his journey I was truly grateful to be able to help him be as comfortable as possible. I had found my calling, I began working in a retirement home. my grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and I cared for him, I wanted to be as prepared for the care he needed so I took a special course on Alzheimer's. I then found a job in an Alzheimer's unit. I knew that was the career for me. I felt proud to be able to care for them. I took the time to establish relationships with each of my residents, and was proud to be able to make a huge impact in someones life. My residents were apart of me, it was more than a job, they became my family. I am a hard working, that will care for each person with love and respect.
