Hi, i became a caregiver 8 years ago, i started working for my boss as a housekeeper, but due to her age my duties changed, i enjoy her company as well as taking good care of her, give her medications and do basic things around the house but most of my time is with her, giving her company and doing for her things that she is no more able to do. i feel very proud of what i do because it makes me feel good knowing that i can help someone that is alone, i am very active, great sense of humor, know how to act in case of an emergency and very caring, my job is not only a job its about making the person in need to feel happy and confortable.
