I have liked being a caregiver since childhood. It started with my dolls and then my infant twin sisters. Later I had my own children. there were a lot of elderly in our country area and I would visit and help as I could. I soon got a job at a convalescent home and was very happy. I have worked for hospice for 10+ years and done private duty and worked for other facilities. I love caregiving because it helps the other person and fulfills a part of me. I guess the biggest achievement in life for me is raising four beautiful children without the financial or other parent support. We were poor but happy and they have all become quality adults. I am sixty six years old. I was married at age fourteen and had my first child at age sixteen. I grew up in rural N.C. I have lived in Florida for around thirty three years. I worked a few office jobs but decided to go into caregiving and I have been very happy with that decision. I have lived in downtown Orlando for the past twenty years in a great neighborhood. I have no problems with my health or the ability to travel to and from my jobs. I have recently lost a private duty job of over a year due to the client being placed in a facility by family. I am looking forward to meeting my new client and building a wonderful work relationship.
