I became a care giver several year back when I moved into my grandmothers house. At the time, it was just temporary. Then I realized how lonely she was and how much she needed me. So I stayed. I did 10 years caring for her. I worked for IHSS up in Northern California for 5 years, and cared for my gramma for over 10 years. She's my everything and I would do anything to make her happy. I would always make sure she always had a healthy meal on the table, she was bathed daily, taken to all dr appointments for all of her needs, and medications ready to go in the morning. She had two hip surgeries several years ago, and one heart attack two years ago. Af that time this completely disabled her ability to do even more of her daily functions. I had a physical therapist come in and help her re-teach her how to walk since this heart attack threw her whole body out of alignment keep in mind she was 85 at this time. This year she will be 88 and is still alive and doing well. What I love about being a care giver is knowing that my heart is fulfilled for the ones who brought us up, to make each day a better day then yesterday. My personal achievement was graduating from my medical program. Which I was so enthusiastic about learning about the human body and also making this my biggest career move. I graduated as a Medical Assistant, from one of the highest accredited colleges in Northern California as of 2014, at Carrington College. Something I love to do is watch movies and hang out
