Hi my name is Debbie, i have been a caregiver for 10 years. Started at Sunrise assisted living, than did home care for 4 years. Now i work 3-11 at the Bristal Sunday to Thursday. I became an aide, when my Dad got sick. in & out of hospitals & Nursing homes, he always told what great care he got from his aides & that i should become one. Well, years later ended up divorced and needed to get a job. So went to school and the rest is history. Love what i do helping people with daily things that have become to hard for them. i have learned so much, love listening to stories & about there jobs they had or their life and things they used to do. i have cared for & helped many people and sat with ones that passed, so they wouldn't be alone. my job is so rewarding and makes me smile, cause i help make there day a brighter one.
