INITIALLY, I OFFERED THE CHALLENGE, AS THE FORMER CAREGIVER WAS IN THE PROCESS OF RETIRING AFTER 40YEARS OF SERVICE TO A BEAUTIFUL SOUL NAMED "MARIA." BEFORE TAKING OVER, I LEARNED ONE-ON-ONE JOB TRAINING FROM HER. IT WAS A GROULING AND VIGOROUS TORTURE AT THE END OF WHICH I WAS ETERNALLY GRATEFUL. NEVER IN MY LIFE HAS ANY JOB BEEN SO REWARDING, YET CHALLENGING AT THE SAME TIME. I WAS PROUD OF BEINGPERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANOTHER PERSONS PERSONAL SPACE. I ENJOYED "MARIA'S COMPANY", HER FRIENDSHIP, AND GRATITUDE DESPITE HER NON-AMBULANCE, NON-VERBAL. MENTAL CHALLENGE. I STAYED WITH HER UP UNTIL HER LAST DAY ON NOVEMBER 11, 2013. I SHALL ALWAYS MISS HER!!!!
