For me, caring for clients, especially the elderly brings me joy. I've been in the health care field since 2012. I have a bachelors in medical sciences & presently obtaining my masters in health administration. I've worked as a caregiver for a year. For me, It's not much about the money, but about the joy I get from caring for the elderly. It's my dream to manage nursing homes & hospices and I believe that my experience as a care giver will help me better understand the true feelings and needs of these population of people. I see my clients as family and I care for them like family.
