I became a caregiver because my boyfriend ex-wife broke her elbow the first time and I had to take care of her. because she had no one else to help her. I cooked for her cleaned her home, gave her medicines, did laundry and etc. I like taking care of people that happy and cheerful people, that make good conversations. I am a people person. I get the job done right. I used to be in collections in an office and today I cannot get a job, I sent out over over 300 resumes and to this very day I still cannot get a job. So I am happy being a care giver, but I need more jobs. I am still taking care of Mrs. Greco 1 day a week, but I am still looking for more jobs. I took care of mrs. Greco the first time in 2013 for 6 months and 2nd time she fell again in 2014 and I'm stll with her.
