I am 26 old. I've always had a passion to help the elderly. I love the experience of learning more everyday while making a difference in someone's life. I am a very sweet, patient, compassionate person. Caring for others is what I would like to do for the rest of my life. I was the caregiver of my grandfather and late father. My responsibilities varied for both. I would do things from cooking, cleaning, assisting with medicines, helping bathe, assistance going to restroom, keeping company, consistently checking to ensure they are content and happy at all times as well as many other duties. I was a live in caregiver (24 hrs a day). Recently I took care of a elderly women who had triple bipass surgery and 2 stokes. I assisted with grooming, sponge bathes, companionship, assist to and from bathroom, bed, etc. Gave her medicine at appropriate time, cooked, light housekeeping, and any other things she requested.
