I became a caregiver actually by accident. I was helping my mother out with a client of hers and I really enjoyed being of help to the lady my mother took care of and decided this was what I wanted to do. I like being there for the elderly because I see that the majority of them don't have family or someone to help them in their later years. By starting off in caregiving it inspired me to go on and get my CNA and HHA license now my goal is to further my nursing and become an LVN, but i would still like to do in home care.
