I have always have had a heart for taking care of people. I actually wanted to go to school for nursing and well I had 3 kids and deciding being at home with them while they were small was more important at the time. I would say I had received most my experience within the last several years. I was able to help take care of a young man with terminal cancer. He was deaf due to the cancer and almost blind. So I had to learn to communicate with him so we could understand each other. I was only able to be with him for 5 months then he passed and I was right there with him as he wanted me to be. I hav e to say it was the most peaceful thing I have ever seen. Was able to be there to support his family and help with whatever they need during the dying process. Then I was able to take care of my grandmother for a year, she had parkinson's disease and alzheimer's. It was very sad to watch her deteriorate but I wanted to be the one to take care off her. And I wanted to make whatever time she had left the happiest. I am also a Sunday school teacher :) and I also volunteered at a private christian school for a year. And I use to make an income cleaning houses. So I definitely done a little bit of everything :) ... more
