I became a caregiver because of my sister having MS. I enjoy being a caregiver because it gives me personal satisification and I feel that the elderly do not get the help and/or support that they really need. The are so helpless at times and really need someone who genuinely cares about them and respects them. I am most proud of how i help these people and make them feel wanted and important, bringing humor to those at times when it is really needed. I have lived in Florida for a little over a year now. I am 59 years old and am a Registered Medical Assistant, but I enjoy the the more personal touch that I can give to my patients as a caregiver over patients that I can only spend five minutes with them and leave them in a room. Bottom line is that I like to make everyone I come across in my life feel special.
