About Krystal

Overall I'm a helpful person and always have been. It's a pleasure for me to assist and help those that aren't able to do for themselves. That's one reason I've gravitated towards being a caregiver. I get joy from helping those that can't. As you get older in age things become hard and most people simply just enjoy the company of someone. My goal is to ultimately try to work in a nursing home after schooling.

Assist the client (who was a family member) with daily activities. Pretty much everything was hard for her to handle on her own due to old age so I tended to her daily needs.
