About Derrick

I became a caregiver because I saw my mom and some of my relatives working as a CNA caregivers and was interested to do it, too. I give some of my care to the seniors and fortunately have ended up liking it and was able to even get my CNA certificate. I like socializing because care giving gives me a chance to give care as I meet new people. I have been promoted with pay raises for some of the companies I have worked for because they have appreciated the care I have provided and the kind and caring person I am.
