I actually received my certification while in high school, which is over five years now. I decided to take the course, because of the way a family member was treated at a long term care facility. I vowed to be the care giver that cared and really wanted to help. I like being a caregiver to the simple reason, elderly people need assistance and someone has to enoting doing it because they are unfortunate to do it themselves. The biggest accomplishment occur while doing in home care. My client was having trouble breathing and passed out. I revive her and got her to the hospital. I safe someone's life the family showed great gratitude.
