I grew up with a grandma who had strokes. She eventually became paralyzed from a stroke. I would watch my family do everything for her. When I turned 14 I began volunteering to do something she needed and I would stay the weekends and be the only one there to care for her. It brought us closer together. The best thing about being a caregiver would have to be the elderly you meet and the bond you create with them. My biggest achievement so far in life would be getting married. I am easy to get along with but I take my job very serious. I began in nursing when I was 22. My mom worked in nursing for 28yrs. and now I understand why my mom was happy and sad at the same time. Taking care of another human being is the most exciting and heartbreaking job.
