I was the only female in a family with three brothers. Due to my functioning as the helper in many of the domestic chores related to being a part of my family and because of my natural tendencies toward nurturing, I have expanded my role to become the helper for my mother when she became ill and the paid caretaker for my mother-in-law, an elderly neighbor, and other elderly individuals referred to me by my lawyer and other professionals. I am not satisfied in any situation until everyone’s non-medical needs are met. I have become particularly adept at identifying what each individual requires to be comfortable and in finding the resources to meet those needs. My work experience in the past ten years has concentrated on full-time or part-time work with elderly persons with mobility and other health problems that require supervision of a regimen of medicine and physician visits, as well as assistance with maintenance of a household. I can say in all honesty that one of my greatest pleasures in life is in receiving smiles and expressions of gratitude from these individuals I have helped to live a more pleasant, safe, and comfortable life.
