I became a caregiver because I have always enjoyed caring for others. Even at a young age, I would gravitate towards older people who seemed in need of a simple smile or someone to just listen to them. I believe my calling in life was to care for others. For twelve years, I took on the responsibility of helping to care for my mother who had been diagnosed with a genetic chronic illness similar to Parkinsons disease . A few years ago I relocated to California in order to care for my grandmother who has several chronic diseases including Alzheimer’s dementia and COPD. Most recently I cared for a dialysis client. I believe I would be an exceptionally addition to any organization because of my desire to help anyone in need, performing various tasks including being a companion, sitter personal assistant.
