My name is Janay Parker I have been a caregiver for 8 years. I've always wanted to be a caregiver/ nurse since I was a child. What attracted me to be a caregiver is was when I was younger I used to love going to the doctor and seeing the nurses because they were very caring and very careful with how they did things and always made me feel comfortable and not scared while getting a shot or anything. So I as I got older I thought I can do the same thing except for the elderly instead. So one of my biggest achievements was when I finished school and got my AS degree in Medical Assistance.
