I've always had a soft spot for children and the elderly. I was nine when my brother was born with Cerebral Palsy and as a result became one of his primary caretakers in every aspect. At the same time my grandparents were aging and they needed care as well. I learned a great deal watching my parents tend to their daily needs and the joy and comfort expressed between them was priceless. So when my Dad was diagnosed with cancer and my Mom with Alzheimer's it was natural for me to move home and take care of both of them until they passed. I've also been a nanny and enjoyed that immensely. Over a year ago I received my CNA certification and proceeded to work at a memory care facility in the area, however I realized I was much better at one on one with people so I could really concentrate on their specific needs. After leaving there I have continued to nanny. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to know and care for so many people that have crossed my path so far in this life and desire to help other families as well.
