I have managed a before and after school program for 15 years and also been a licensed daycare provider. I believe that life is a full circle and that our children and elderly are very similar and need to be treasured and cared for. Over the last 2 years have been helping my elderly neighbor with housekeeping, taking her to Dr. appts., giving her a Tues. night shampoo set, grocery shopping and being a companion to her, my dog and I would go to her home most evenings and visit. I was the one who found her when she passed away and she had a profound effect upon my life. I believe that these should be our Seniors "Golden Years" and all too often they are not. I loved caring for my neighbor and miss her very much and I want to help other older people get the most out of their lives. I am proud of the fact that I was able to make her happy and help her remain in her home until the day she passed, I know she loved me as much as I loved her. I am a very emphatic person with a great work ethic and I will take any training that I need to in order to become a caregiver. I am also the child of older parents and I have always had a great love and respect for the elderly.
