About Shelley

I became a caregiver cause I like helping people. most of the time I would find that these people I was helping had family but they never came to visit. They were lonely to even just to talk to someone. The only time a family member would bother with them is when they wanted money . Which was so said to me cause I make it a point to see my parents once a week. I liked doing what the clients needed done and how happy they were about the littlest thing you did but to them it was something they were not able to do. I meet so many nice clients, I sometimes think I was very lucky. Don't get me wrong I had one guy who scared me buy always yelling at me and he was a big guy. I am proud of doing my job and doing it to the best that the client would want it done. Many of my clients couldn't believe how fast I could clean and what a good job I could do. I am a very easy going person, I don't let thing get to me. I don't even get road rage which some of my friends can't even believe. if someone is in a hurry I will let them go by, why make them madder, I am not going let someone like that ruin my day. I was very sad about having to get a different job but at that time gas prices was through the roof and with all the errands I had to do for my clients most of my check was put back in my gas tank.
