I became a caregiver because I was sitting at home w/ little to do. I'm a good hearted person and I feel the need to share this. What I like about being a caregiver is that it's a rewarding experience. I'm doing what I enjoy, caring for people, cooking, cleaning etc. I have worked and raised my children to adulthood on my own. I have worked w/ the elderly and some of the residents were incontinent when I started working there I was able to help them into the bathroom. The residents stayed dry throughout my shift. I'm currently a housekeeper. I have always been a caring person. I am a christian and belong to Emmanuel Episcopal, I'm currently practicing to become a daughter of the king where we meet regularly and pray for the people who need it. I was raised to accept all religions, races, ethnicity and the golden rule "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". I take personal pride in all this. My hobbies are reading, sewing, crocheting, and knitting.
