I am compassionate and empathetic about the population of people I work for. I became a caregiver because this is the one population i can be genuinely compassionate for because they do not make a choice in getting old and needing help. The thing i enjoy the most is being there to assist the elderly allowing them to be able to stay in their homes as long as possible with the highest level of independence. I am proud of being a first generation college graduate. Even with being a single parent and raising 3 daughters by myself who are now adults. No certification can teach you to be compassionate and empathetic...only doing the job. I am also most importantly reliable and dependable.
