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.

Why I became a caregiver is because I like helping people I think that's the best job u can have . I had a grandma who I heloped take care of In the last years of her life she had dementia ,parksisons disease, and many other health issues . That definitely made me want to help other individuals and other families through things like that. What I enjoy most with being a caregiver is helping people and making a difference in someone's life and getting to know that person and help out . I'm a very kind and caring person . I'm very reliable and responisble as well. I have a good heart that cares about people . I am a laid back person who is very patient as well . I was recently a caregiver to elderly couple as well .
