About Carrie

I have decided to become a caregiver at this point in my life because I have been caring in one way or another in my jobs whether it was in my restaurant jobs to my previous personal caring of individuals. I love working with people and helping in anyway I possibly can. To me this kind of work is rewarding in ways that cant be explained. I guess you can say my personal achievement would be my raising from my parents and the things that were taught to me as a child. Respect, pride, honesty, and to always do unto others as you would have them do unto you. I have also had to care for my grandfather who died with Alzheimer's. And have cared for a man who was hit by a drunk driver and broke his right knee and left arm, he needed 24hr care and I cared for him for almost 9 months before he was able to do for himself again. After that as short time later my husband received a chemical burn on his foot which covered his ankle down to almost his toes. He underwent 3 skin grafts and I learned how to clean and bandage those wounds to keep him from getting an infection. I also worked for a lady whose husband had a major stroke. You will find a review on record.
