I decided to become a caregiver because I was brought up by my grandmother all my life and now I'm grown up and she is a lot older now and needing extra help to do her ADL's, I figure since she took the time to be there for me when I was a kid, I will be there by her side when she get's older and needs assistance. No Long-term care facility with strangers taking care of her. I'm her family and my personal achievement is to become a cna and while she's still here with us to become here caregiver that's trained properly, and basically helping others when they can no longer help them selves.
