I have been a caregiver a good portion of my adult life. I raised three sons, who are now grown.I cared for friends children while they worked when I was a stay at home Mom. I am now employed as a Teacher Asst in a special needs preschool caring for 3, 4 and 5 year olds.I have been thinking of breaking away from caring for children and would like to be a caregiver to the elderly. Taking them shopping, shopping for them, medical appointments. I call myself a professional mother, I love taking care of people. My proudest achievements for my three sons, ages 33, 30 and 22 and my 35 year marriage to Jack.
