About Shekara

I became a Caregiver because as I was growing up, I witnessed a lot of elderly people not being cared for properly. I wanted to make a difference and provide the elderly with the care and support they needed. Being a Caregiver gives me joy. The thought of making someone else's life better, is the greatest feeling in the world. Most of the elderly are alone, without family and being able to provide direct care, love and support, is worth while. Its comforting to them, knowing that someone cares. I am mostly proud of rescuing a client from an abusive home. Many times Caregivers are scared to report abuse, neglect, etc. trying not to get involved but to know that I saved someone's life, is just why I signed up for this career!
