Ten years ago I moved from NY to Georgia where I started my first job as a caregiver. I worked in a assisted living facility where we had 30+ residents on the assisted living unit and 15 residents in the dementia unit. That's where I found my passion with working with people with needs and since then my jobs have been based on who I can help. I enjoy being a caregiver most to be able to help someone it warms my heart to help others. I currently personal shop once a week for a elderly neighbor that is disable and home bound. I met him while I was working as an Instacart Shopper and was asked if I could run an errand. Without hesitation I did it and when I got back he asked for my phone number so I could personal shop for him and I agreed its been 1.5 years.
