I became a caregiver at the point my grandmother turned 80. She could barely walk or eat i had to feed her,change her every five to six hours bath her and many more. What i like about care giving is i picture every old person as my grandmother and therefore provide them with the same great treatment i gave her.I was able to take care of my grand mother for five straight years until she passed away but before she did she told me( she has never had such a great treatment like this in her life so may God bless me to continue the good work) and i think that was my greatest achievement. I'M lovina Poku aged 45 with two kids. I'm actually an immigrant from west Africa(Ghana) but now permanently leaving in the US. I came here with a goal which is to work very hard to be able to provide for some family members back home. I speak English but not very fluent but don't get me wrong i can understand every single thing im instructed to do.
