I become a caregiver because i like people and loves to help them. It gives me satisfaction to be able to help people that really needs help. The elderly especially. I'm proud when I help and the people appreciates it and give a pat on the shoulder that I did a good job. The feeling that you are able to help with any body is very rewarding. I' 56 years old and just graduated LPN and will taking my NCLEX exam soon. I been working as a Patine care Tech at Loyola University Hospital and working a part time caregiver on the weekend. Married with no kids. I love animals and I happened to own one. I have a dog name Buster. He is 15 years old. He gives a joy, me and my husband.
