I am very caring and compassionate and that is what has drawn me to become a caregiver because people need care and they most definitely need to be shown compassion.

I became interested in care giving because my Mom was in an automobile accident which left her paralyzed & my sister-in-law was in an automobile accident which left her with a brain injury. I was my mom's main caregiver from age 17 until I was married at age 22 & again when she moved in with me for the last 5 years of her life. She had bladder cancer. I became a caregiver in Greenwood because I really enjoy helping people to be able to live at home without having to live in a nursing home. I promised my mom she would never have to live in a nursing home, and she never did. It wasn't easy but it was worth it. I prefer not to bath & dress only because I have had to do this for my mom most of my life and it's never been easy, it was something I did because it needed to be done, but if I get to know the person and they need help every once in awhile, I will do anything to help them. I was with 2 of my clients until they passed away, even thought it wasn't in my "job description", their families allowed me to visit them. It wasn't easy, but I know they appreciated it and it made it worth it. I prefer the one on one attention I can give when working with an individual in their home.
I have always enjoyed helping others in need. It has become second nature to me. Growing up I was always taught to treat others as I would like to be treated which I brought up my children the same. I have been blessed to be able to work with families that grew to love and trust me and I felt the same. I'm looking forward to helping others as well. I can provide a letter of recommendation from my previous family which I worked for 5 years.
