After being a stay at home mom for 20 years I figured the next step should be to help out the elderly. I have been a caregiver (certified) for over 13 years now and absolutely love it.

I became a care giver at the age of 18 because I needed a job in my local town, once I started in this profession I became more and more infatuated with it. Therefore, I have chosen to be care giver for more than 30yrs. In this time frame I have accelerated my education by becoming a Nurse Delegate and going to Everest Tech where I received a diploma as a medical assistant. I have learned so much in this time, however no one can know every thing, my Papa says a person must strive to learn some thing new every day so, I try my best. I have continued in this particular line of work because, my heart goes out to those who are in need whether it be in companionship or personal care. I strive to help them remember the old days, family, fun things they have done, where they grew up and compare with them how things are today. If I am on shift I do my best to give each person some quality time I think that is very important to a person no one likes to feel like they are just another body; I compliment all, give hugs, and listen if someone is sad. I am known as the Hummer at work, I hum through the whole shift, sometimes a resident/ client will tell me I am humming a certain child hood song and start singing it for me, they will ask me why I hum I say its a warning (if I am not humming I am in a bad mood) they laugh an say you must be happy all the time, I say yep when I'm here with you I am happy.
