I am a mother of five children from 17 to 3 years old each of them have things that have taught me life lessons as well as medical conditions who else would take care of your family better than a mother they have to be at all all at the same time wow having empathy and a super hero mode I've been doing this since 2011 and I just really enjoy working with adults I always say that if they've lived this long then the care shouldn't be less than what they deserve and they also shouldn't be brushed under the table and forgotten they took care of us while we were younger and now it's our turn to step up as a community and take care of our elderly and sick it's our job as a human being.
