    I was a medical/surgical assistant for over 10 years. After maxing out salary wise, I was offered a job as a mortgage broker/trainee. I became a broker and did that for several years, until the crash. My dad fell and broke his hip about the same time and went into a rehab facility, where he passed shortly thereafter. I experienced such a dilemma, as I lived several hours away and was not able to oversee his care. I believe he died due to lack of competence. That was when I decided I would make a difference for other families experiencing the same problem, and hopefully would be able to give them the peace of mind that I so needed then. As a caregiver, I find that uplifting others keeps me going. I find that some of the residents faces light up when I come to assist them, and that just makes my day. I took care of a lady for three and one half years prior to my current job, who was incontinent. They had to remove her catheter, so I had to devise a way to keep her dry, as she was also non-ambulatory. I am proud to say that she stayed dry 98% of the time, which made all our lives much easier. Creativity and innovation are two of my strongest points and I find that quite helpful in this line of work. My daughter and her family live right next door to me, so on my days off I take care of my two little angels. I have a grandson who just turned three and one who will be two at the end of this month. I now understand why they are called "Grand" Children.
