It is a quite sad, yet interesting reason I decided to become a Caregiver. I lost my grandmother back in February of this year (2014), about 2 weeks before my 23rd birthday. Not only did it break my heart, but I knew the month of February (and my life) would never be the same again. And ever since then, I have been feeling somewhat incomplete… Like I let her down because I didn't really spend much time with her because I was so "busy." In addition to that, I also felt like something was missing in me. It wasn't until I became a Professional Teller at a bank and was forced to push financial "solutions" ( credit cards, mortgages, auto loans, etc.) onto unsuspecting elders, that I knew I had a greater calling. Because that could've easily been my grandmother in those young persons' shoes if she were still alive. So on August 21, 2014; I turned in my letter of resignation and decided to use my kind heart and services for good. And I must say that I have never felt more proud. I also believe that my grandmother is looking down on me smiling. I was her grand baby, Dionte McFadden and I always will be. ... more
