I wanted to become a caregiver because I enjoyed going to work with my mother and looking up to how she helped the disabled. I love being a caregiver, being able to help those who are elderly and disable is my passion. I have been a caregiver for 10 year and I have learned a lot. I have helped people with all kinds of back rounds, and listened to the amazing stories they have to tell about their lives. I have worked as a CNA from 2005-2011 and I am currently a live in caregiver. I will be attending school in February 2015 to study Practical Nursing. Care giving is my life and I love it!
