I am a great caregiver because I care for every human being on the planet, especially, seniors. I have been providing care for children and seniors for over 40 years. I started caring for children as a teenager providing babysitting services. Later, I cared for senior relatives for many years, usually until passing. For the past 6 years, I have been caring for seniors professionally. Caregiving can be challenging, but it is gratifying when you know you have shown love to a person in their later years of life, and they have shown you love also in accepting the care. My best achievement has been pare nting 3 children, which are now loving, caring, professional individuals, who conduct their lives being a blessing to others in their every day activities. What an accomplishment to me to know that their caring ways came from home. My mission is to continue to assist our nation in keeping as many seniors in their homes as possible by providing them with some of the daily living skills that they can no longer perform, such as showering, dressing, having healthy meals, paying their bills, or just having a friend to play a game of cards with. When I provide this kind of care, I am fulfilling what I know is my purpose on this earth. ... more
