Growing up I always had a passion for being a person to care for people. I started as a teenager caring for babies and my passion continued to grow. I wanted to become a cna after my friend did and told me how much she loved it and it sounded like something I would love to do as well. My favorite part of being a caregiver is the satisfaction of knowing for sure everything was Done properly and I know the job was done not having to worry when I leave peoples homes. I also love the relationships that are built between caregivers and the person needing care also their families.
