I've been in the health care field for more then 9+ years and love every minute of it. Being able to help someone who can't completely help themselves and be appreciated for the help, time & effort, is the best feeling in the world . I started off working with my great grandmother who currently at the time is 106. While working with her I observed the other workers weren't treating her the way she should've been treated. I wanted to be able to help her and many others that were being mistreated like that, to be put in a better safe & enjoyable environment . I currently finished my CNA training in December 2014 and currently on the waiting list to join the RN program. In addition to helping my grandmother I just finished working with my aunt, whom recently passed away of brain and lung cancer. I worked with her for 6month and did total care on her. Bathing, feeding, medicine, walking etc.
