I became a caregiver because I have had 2 great aunts go into Nursing Homes do to Alzheimer's and shortly after being admitted they both died do to malnutrition. So I became Certified Nursing Assistant so that I can help those who can't help themselves and prevent them from going to a facility.I love being a caregiver because it's rewarding to myself to help people and be a reliable support system to them and to give there family a peace of mind know that I do my best to keep their loved ones in great health. I have many personal achievements that I am proud of. One being that I decided to go back to school and get certified to help others and that I am currently working in my field. I'm loving, hard working, honest, outgoing, responsible, trust worth, respectable, patient, and full of positivity.
