For most of my life I have been a caregiver. My mother had diabetes and was very ill, with diabetes and heart problems during my childhood. She passed away when I was 11 years old. As I was a, "change of life" baby most of my relatives were much older as I entered into my 20's. I cared for a next door neighbor after her husband passed away and the family had other commitments that did not allow them to care for Anne on a daily basis. I stepped up to the plate and helped out with her care. Then my own family! Two children and two step children ranging in age from infant to teenagers. All are grown now. I wish to be able to give back and derive great pleasure in helping others. I read about your company in AARP and was greatly impressed. I am compassionate, caring, loving and giving, these attributes makes for a great caregiver.
