I have been a care giver for seniors for almost 2 years now. I honestly did not think i would grow to love it the way i do. I work for a Nursing home with seniors who suffer from dementia and Alzheimer's. I really enjoy sitting down and talking with my residents and a lot of time see that with the right amount of conversation they still have their sense of humor. I am more than happy to serve the seniors. I provide companionship, assistance with toileting, bathing, feeding and assistance with many other activities of daily living. The elderly are forgotten about alot of the time but i am here to let them know, they still matter and as long as i know them will always treat them with respect and dignity and they will always have a friend.
