My passion for becoming a caregiver started when I was a very young child. My mother would take me and my brother to visit my grandparents in nursing homes. I saw how well cared for people can taken care of. But it really started to sink in that I could do this when I was 17 my cousin was dying of stage 4 breast cancer. I helped her for 8 months every day. Taking her to doctor visits, reminding her to take her meds, making meals for her and bathing/dressing her. While in this time she showed me that I had compassion and a heart for a job like this. A lot of people can say that care giving is easy, but i f they dont have a strong stomach for certain things and a heart of gold not many can call this a career. I'm a full believer that when a person is in need to medical help and able to be at home it is 100% better for that individual. Its their surroundings, their home, their comfort. And when you add a supportive family it makes everything a whole lot better too. I also believe that our elderly deserve the very best care that they can get. After all a lot have had families of their own, raised their childern,worked for years, and now that they are older they deserve the very best care that there is out there. ... more
