My grandparents had owned a boarding home, when I was in my early teens and I would go over and help where I could. There was one lady that sat by the door and would grab you when you would go by. For the longest time she always scared me, but I soon realized that all she wanted was someone to talk to. And from that time on I knew that most of our elderly clients just wanted someone to take the time to listen to the. I started working in a nursing home in 1984 in Missouri and knew that I like my job. When I'm at work I'm there for the resident, and I do want their want not what I want. So many residents have family but don't come to see them but when that resident dies the family is the first one's there to see what they can get. We become family because we are there at least 5days a week. I enjoy working with the elderly and yes I get attached even tho your told not to. Our elderly can tell you a lot if only you take the time to listen.

I became a care giver to try and make a difference in someone's life. I enjoy meeting new people and helping people even if its just to sit and listen to what they have to say. A personal achievement that I am proud of is I have never let my work interfere with my home life. I am a mother of five and a stepmother to two more children. I love taking care of people.
