About Laura

I became a caregiver because there are people who are unable to do things for themselves. I like helping others who need help. My mother and father both were diagnosed with cancer and became bed bound. I found joy in helping them even though they were very independent and stubborn. I love to smile even when a patient gives me a hard time. I try to assure them that I will make them comfortable. I love being a companion and like listening to them. I also enjoy seeing a smile on the patient's face. That's the main reason why I am proud of myself, putting a smile on someone's face.
