I decided to become a caregiver to provide support to the elderly person in need of companionship and care. I like being able to bring a smile onto the clients face because there a many people does not have a family member around all of the time or they may feel lonely because they can no longer do the things they use to do, by having someone come around each day can help to make them feel a little better. One personal achievement that comes to mind is actually passing the Certified Nurses Assistant class at one point I had decided it was not for me, but I decided stick with it. I am a mother of 5 with several grandchildren, I enjoy meeting new people, going to the beach, reading, and playing bingo.
