At the age of 10, I landed my first job as summer companion to Catherine DeForest, my maternal grandmother. Unsurprisingly, the work of companion to the family matriarch required copious amounts of physical labor - my grandmother was elderly - but the experience also involved inklings of a new and unexpected pleasure - the gratifications of responsibility. My grandmother, who was from New York, arrived at Glendale Cottage on Lake Winnipesaukee, on the first day of summer. Over a period of 12 years, I joined her there. I cleared the acorns from the grasses of her double croquet court, hiked each morning, shopping list in one hand, bills and change in the other, to the corner store to buy her groceries, and rowed her, my grandmother did not drive an automobile, across Smith's Cove to tea at the homes of neighbors. Her training served me well. From my grandmother I learned to be a responsible member of a household. I learned to be good company. Still under my grandmother's spell I enjoy being secretary and companion to the mobile elderly.

I have empathy for people who are hurting and wish to see them living as independent in their lives as possible. A caregiver helps that person achieve that or near that goal. That makes the person given care happy and so do I. What would have resulted into depression is taken away leading the individual to enjoy a full and independent life.
