-I became a caregiver because I genuinely care for elderly people and the kind of care they should receive. I am also from a country where we value our parents above all, and we take care of them until the end; I feel like the elderly should receive quality care from those who are willing to provide it. -I enjoy helping other people, and it gives me great satisfaction and helps me to realize that when I become older, I would like for someone such as my children to also take care for me, as I have taken care of them. I also feel that most of the time, the elderly want our help, and they just don't know how to ask for it, therefore it's good to offer it ahead of time. -I am proud that even though I did not get to do some of the things that I wanted and live the kind of quality life that I would have liked, I am glad to see my son successful in a job that he enjoys and see that my daughter is working hard to achieve her dreams, and that she takes care of my husband and I so well. -I am from India, and I have been living in the United States since 1980, and both of my children were born and raised here. My husband and I have been married for 35 years.
