I have been caring for people since I was in middle school, everyday after school I had the job of taking care of my grandfather while my aunt went to work. I got very close with him and learnt a lot of things about my family i never knew thus the reason I became a caregiver. Not only do you learn a lot from your elders but the joy you bring them makes them feel so good even though they may feel so bad inside. I love seeing my patients growth, some people you get cant do anything but seeing them come out of that phase and seeing the smile on their face when they accomplish something they couldnt do before I became their caregiver is the best part of my job.Its almost like I am a proud mother watching their baby grow up and finish high school. I am most proud of overcoming my ruff childhood upbringing and making my family proud of me and being the best mother I can be for my own child. I have a three year old son who is the best thing that ever could have happen to me because he gave me a better since of responsibility when I thought I had nothing else to live for he came and changed everything. I also help my dad who is fighting vocal cord cancer with the little things he cant do which is pretty much being his voice. I am a loving person who is willing to go out of my way to help anybody in need if I am able.
