I was inspired by both my grandmothers . They both became of old age and I fell in love with caring for them. What I like most about being a caregiver is establishing a strong bond. The companionship that is created is remarkable . The trust they give you to care for them is an honor. A personal achievement I am proud of is learning to deal with elders who have different stages of dementia, Alzheimers, and memory lost. It takes a lot of patience and it is a disease. It requires much understanding and I am blessed to have the knowledge,understanding,patience, and love to handle it. I am a college student studying social work. I am also a single mother of a beautiful active 13 month baby girl. I love the outdoors . I enjoy reading realistic fiction books. My favorite writer is Mary Downing Hahn. I have been in the field of working with elders personally 7yrs & professionally 5yrs. I love working with seniors it is my passion and I hope to evolve in the field.
