I became a caregiver because my elderly grandfather suffered two major strokes and was bedridden. He was pretty much in a vegetable state. at a very young age i decided that caring for others was my calling. i began to work with him and i was really the only who who could understand what he needed and was saying. i love being a caregiver because i know it gives others a peace of mind to know their loved ones are being taken care of. i also love that I am able to help people get theirs lives back by being able to stay at home where they would like to be. i am in nursing school and expected to graduate in April of 2015. I have been a caregiver for 4 years now and I plan to do this for years to come!
