HELLO MY NAME IS JOHN. I HAVE BEEN DOING CARE GIVING FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS. I STARTED WORKING WITH FAMILY, AND THEN I BRANCHED OUT AND WENT INTO THE WORK FORCE CARE GIVING. DURING THE COURS OF WITH I OBTAINED A HHA LICENSE, CNA LICENSE, AND DIRECT CARE LICENSE. I BECAME A CAREGIVER BECAUSE I ENJOY HELPING OTHER NO MATTER WHAT THE CAUSE. I ENJOY MAKING OTHER HAPPY. WHAT I LIKE ABOUT CAREGIVING IS THAT, WE GET THE CHANCE HANDS ON TO WORK WITH A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE WHOM SOMETIMES AREN'T ABLE TO CARE FOR THEMSELVES, AND THATS WHERE GREAT PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF STEP IN TO MAKE LIFE AND THE DAILY NEEDS OF CERTAIN THINGS MUCH EASIER FOR THEM TO HANDLE.

I love being a Caregiver because I have a passion for putting others first. Seeing someone with an intellectual disability able to lead a happy, safe and fulfilling life is enough to make it all worthwhile. In essence, it's about making small changes to your everyday life to make major beneficial changes to someone with an intellectual disability. Seeing them respond to their new environment - and the care and love that shapes it - provokes a feeling that must be experienced to be believed. And there's simply no reward quite like watching the smile emerge and hearing their laughter. I've being a caregiver for more then 10 years now. I used to volunteer for nursing home and other activity when I was in the age of 19 so that's how i was encouraged to become a caregiver. I love to socialize,read, swim,meet new people and play sports.
