I love the elderly. I have been in love with classic movies since I was a teen. Edward G Robinson, Joan Crawford, Barbara Stanwyck just to name a few are my favorite actors. These people lived in that era and they possess a wealth of wisdom. I love listening to them and worked as a certified nursing asst. in a day program for Alzheimer and dementia patients for 4 years.. I left being a care giver for quite some time and ran a successful daycare which was featured on a program called the visionaries on PBS and seen all over the world. I won the home based small business administration award and was asked to say a speech and introduce Hillary Clinton. I recently moved to North Carolina Fort Bragg area after briefly working at the Arturo Shromberg senior citizens center in the Bronx NY. I really made some wonderful connections with the people there. I truly believe that the love and kindness I feel toward the elderly is a direct extension of the love I had for my own mom whom I lost a short while ago and that someday I will reap that kindness when I myself reach my golden years. I want to leave some good memories in the hearts of those I care for! I am thankful for those years I had helping to train the next generation and have just completed my training for my hha certificate to prepare me once again to work with the elderly. I am just a few credits from completing my associates degree in accounting and then I hope to go on for my bachelor's degree.
