I became a caregiver because I was not satisfy with the service that was given to my love ones by the state. I enjoy doing it because I got things done and it was appreciate. My personal achievement was hearing Thank You. To see that they were clean, fresh clothes and eating on time made me feel good. I am a retired social worker of 32 years. I have worked with United Way. America Red Cross, Guilford County Commissioner, Human Service Aide and Ward Clerk in a Mental Hospital. I am a widow with 5 adult children, 14 grandchildren and 7 greats. I do not like sitting around I like to keep busy and love doing for others.
