For as long as I can remember , caring for the elderly was always a priority of mine. It seemed then that kids cared more about their parents when they were young vs today. Someone had to takeover to care for those who were now in their golden age. As a caregiver I am able to exercise kindness, love, patience, my giving nature, nurturing, care and a high level of communication also be a friend. I once had a case where the client was not expected to live more than a month. I met with her and within the first hour with her I realized that she wanted to die because no one cared about her. I immediately started to reverse that by talking to her about everything and everyone she could remember. Showed her love, took her out, for she hadn't been out of the house for quite sometime. I proceeded to exercise my expertise and soon had her cheery and lively. One month came and went. I moved on. I am a loving, caring and nurturing person; honest, reliable, trustworthy, punctual, mature and a driver who has own car. Married with no children and I am 50yrs. old. 5' 5" ins. tall and 135 lbs. weight. Pleasant in appearance and easy to communicate with; very intelligent and creative.
