About Cheryl

I am a great caregiver because I am a great daughter. I took care of my mother when she was dying of lung cancer. I have been in this field for 25 years. I love what I do. I use to work in a hospital for 12 years until my health problems got in the way. I am still able to do homecare. I am a certified CNA. I am also able to do CPR. I, also, have a valid drivers license so I can drive elders to their appointments. I became a caregiver because I missed my grandparents. So, I started as an HHA back in 1990 when I was pregnant with my son and I loved it. I was cooking, shopping, activities of daily living for the elders and I loved it. They gave me history lessons that I didn't enjoy in school that I enjoyed now. Since I became an HHA I went back to school and learned a lot of medical terms and nursing skills. I never received a degree which I regret however I did learn a lot. I did get a job in a hospital and worked in the ICU for 12 years before my health got me. I enjoyed it very much. Saved many lives with help and I miss it but there is a lot of gratitude in homecare also. I am a mother of three children, A boy and two girls. They're great kids. They keep me young.
