I never thought about being a caregiver. But I was asked by a friend if I could spend some time and help out with her Grandmother. I had no experience in this area, but I instantly fell in love with my "client". In the beginning, she was able to do some things for herself, even with the dementia.She enjoyed being on the front porch, even though when we got back in the house, she wouldn't remember it. She loved spraying herself off after a shower. And she loved her ice cream. But as time went on she got weaker and weaker. When she was ill enough to be put in a nursing home for more intense care, I decided that this was something I was good at and enjoyed doing. So I went to school to obtain my CNA license. When my "little lady" was returned home, it was just a matter of keeping her comfortable. But she was still in good spirits. I wasn't there the day she passed, because my Dad passed the day before. Working in assisted living was an easier pace, and it seems more attention is paid to the clients. I worked in the Dementia unit which presents it's own set of situations. But the clients I worked for were wonderful people. It wasn't hard to have a smile on my face everyday just being around them, even though some days could be pretty intense. I've always said I would treat any "client", "patient", as family. The way I would take care of my own. And I found that out in Oct of last year, when I was fortunate enough to take care of my own Mother as she struggled with cancer, it was an honor to be with her through her last days. I've held the hand of a few of my "family" of people, including my own Mother as they have left this world. And just knowing that I was able to give them some peace and some comfort to me is what makes me enjoy this job, even with the sorrow that comes with it. I'm looking to have a one on one position. I would like to be close to the Antioch/Brentwood, Tenn area, I just moved here and I'm still getting acquainted with the area.

I became a caregiver because I love helping people in need. Why I like being a caregiver is having the ability to help someone besides your self is a blessing. It shows that you have heart and that you care enough to show someone that there are still people who care. I also like being a care giver because showing another person love and care is something special. A personal achievement that I'm proud of is that God blessed me with patience and love to be able to show that to someone else. I'm proud to be able to pass on something that some people aren't willing to share and that's love for your fellow human. I enjoy helping the elderly or being a caregiver because it's something very special. My heart melts when I show that person that I care because to look into their face and to see their reaction to being helped with things they're not able to do is something wonderful. I'm a loving, caring, understanding, honest, trustworthy and most of all wonderful person to have as a friend or co-worker. I go beyond and over when it comes to doing my job. I don't mind helping anyone with anything to make them happy. I believe in treating people the way I want to be treated. I don't like to see people unhappy. I to try to put a smile on everyone's face that I'm around or come in contact with. They always tell me that no matter what's going on in your life always keep a smile on your face because things aren't as bad as they may seem. If your able to wake up in the morning it
