I became a caregiver through way of an aunt. She had a live in case for many years and she would bring me over some weekends to keep her and "Mrs Swartz"company. Mrs Swartz was so sweet,u wanted to take care of her.she was so thankful for everything you'd do for her. As I had gotten older,and mastered their routine my aunt and Ms Swartz would allow me to take my aunts place if she needed to be off for the day. It came naturally to me. I've always liked helping people.I feel its my calling.
