I became a caregiver because I've always wanted to be in the health care service or medical field. I've worked with elders from dementia to Alzheimer's. I love to work with the elderly because I have the patience to care for them and a lot of times caregivers do not have good reputations and I'd like to change that. The elderly are not just patients or residents to me they become close friends. I recieved my training and CNA lisence at Jensen Beach High School in there Nursing program. I also am certified in Blood Bourne Pathogens, CPR and First Aid, and am a Med Tech as well.
