I became a caregiver at an early age of 6-8 when living with my great grandmother whom was very very bowlegged. My granny became unable to climb the stairs so, down stairs became her living area. I assisted her in washing up, empty her bedside commode, dressing her.S Also my great grandfather, around 13 I became close to him as he became ill. Granddaddy and I would watch t.v, I would make lunch remind him of his meds, clip his nails or we would just talk. So I always knew I would be in the medical field. I feel I'm serving my purpose and I feel everyone has a place and a part in life.
