My grandma lived with us and I took care of her when she became ill. I took a C N A course and passed but then started to develop an interest in computer and was taking some classes in that field. Then just last year my Uncle Joe got worse with dementia - he was 94. My family wanted him to have a peaceful surroundings to live in rather than in a dementia care unit. I was my Uncle Joe's primary live in caregiver for the last 4 years of his life. It was challenging, yet fulfilling. Caring for people gives meaning to life - it is about respect. I am 28 years old. I have registered to volunteer at Rainbow Hospice but finding a paying position would be great.
