Some people ask me, "why are you a caregiver?" I smile and simply respond, "I care to care."
Caring for others has not only created an occupation for me, but also a way of life.
Waking up in the morning and knowing that I am on my way to make someone feel better, either by assisting with daily living activities, by listening, or by telling jokes that make a client smile, makes me feel a great sense of accomplishment and joy.

1 I have a passion for putting others first. Seeing someone with an intellectual disability able to lead a happy, safe and fulfilling life is enough to make it all worthwhile. In essence, it's about making major beneficial changes to someone with an intellectual disability. Seeing them respond to their new environment - and the care and love that shapes it - provokes a feeling that must be experienced to be believed. And there's simply no reward quite like watching the smile emerge and hearing their laughter.
Why? Because I care, and am blessed to be able to. Here's how it happened: I became a caregiver first when Mom was diagnosed with cancer. That was 10+ years ago. (She's 65 & was diagnosed in 2005 with Alz and cancer) I continue to be the full time caregiver,I left school to take care of her. Yes, Praise the Lord, He has givin me strength to make a difference here! .
