I became a caregiver after doing office work for 22 yrs and needed a career change. I always loved children and the elderly and since being an only child and losing my Mom at age 56 and my Dad at age 59 back in the 80's I chose the field of homemaker/caregiver. It is such a rewarding field the young at heart are just the best ! As far as personal achievements when my Dad was dying my husband the father of my 3 children a boy and twin daughters decided to leave me. Then my 75 young Nana passed then MOM leaving me with 3 children and a house to run. Well I did it . My children are all grown up with good jobs and have children of their own .I thand GOD for all his help..AMEN.As far as me I am 59 yrs old always have a smile on my face that seems to bring a smile to all my clients. I turn rain into sunshine as one of my clients told me
