After working with the elderly for the last eight years, I have developed a great love and appreciation for those in their later years. Their stories, families and histories have given me a wonderful perspective on life that I could not have found without these relationships. Caring for those in their later years is not only fulfilling, but gives me a sense of purpose, responsibility and belonging. Beyond basic caregiving, we go on walks, talk, and get to know each other in a very special way. Every person I have worked with I have loved and felt as if they were family. I think it is a privilege to be let into their worlds, and I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to know and love them. I look forward to developing more of these relationships in the future. Less
