Becoming a caregiver came quite naturally to me. I just fell into working with the elders through home health nurses who offered me positions with their private duty cases. I continued from there to get training at the St Augustine Technical Center for CNA. Furthering my education a few years after working in home health as a practical nurse. Transitions in life, caring for family members brought me to being a stay at home caregiver for parents, grandchildren and friends for 12 years. Since divorcing I am choosing to be a companion helper to the elderly as well as babysit for children of friends. My experience is quite valuable. I cook, clean, shop, run errands, assist with scheduling and transporting to appointments. I value people in my life and work to the best of my ability at all times.
