One of the reasons why I became a caregiver growing up my grandmother she always became sick from pneumonia so I decided to take care of her at the age of 20 yrs old. I always wanted the best care for herand because I didn't trust others to take care of her the way I did. What I love about being a caregiver is that I'm able to motivate the patient to still live and not give up on themselves due to age or health reasons. Keeping them happy,smiling ,healthy and in great spirit. I had a patient named Ella that I took care of for 3 years ,when I first started caring for her ,she told me that her family just left her due to her suffering a stroke,Ella was very depressed and sad. So I would take her out to the parks, library and one time to the beach for my family function like Christmas . After a while I started to see her depression fade a away ,but there was still something missing her family so in November of 2011 I contacted her daughter that abandoned Ella , and I talked with her for hours and she agreed to came by to see Ella , Ella was so happy I started crying,since than her daughter has been coming every weekend. I'm down to earth ,passionate ,just very caring.I luv to read,play board games and watch TV a little.
