I enjoy what I do, and I have been doing this type of work for 7 years and I love learning from different patients . I love making people feel better . When I first started working as a care giving I'm not going to lie I was scared of going into people's homes and taking care of a total stranger, but as the days went by I realized this is the type of work I need (because I was shy) and now I can open up and talk to people like I have known them for years and I can make them feel comfortable at the same time. I proud of myself for that. I first took care of my great grandmother who has passed god bless her , and I though to myself I'm pretty good at this .. So I took the training and learned more and turned it into a career.
