1. Initially, I became a caregiver because it was time to come home and care for both my parents. I lived with them 10+ years until their passing. I missed my purpose and continued working in the same field. 2.I like the intimacy and knowing that what I do is vital for each client to make their day a better and happier day. 3.My personal achievement that I am most proud of is taking care of my parents and making sure they were safe, loved and their last years were good and happy as they could be. Each day was a gift to all three of us, and I always tried to keep smiles an active part of each day. 4.I am 70 years old, look and feel much younger, I am very health, 130 pounds, 5'2", I have 120 units in nursing, I am not a nurse, but understand the language, I have a BS degree in finance, Jewish, I've been promoted at my present job after doing homecare for some time, and now secure contracts for Comfort Keepers. I will be moving to Las Vegas around the first of the year, if not sooner. I respect and enjoy our older and wiser population.
