Technically I am not a care giver didn't go to school to become a care giver, i did go to school for a medical assistance, Was in American Red Cross summer job helping out in a nursing home, so I do have a little experience. I would say I am a caregiver because I help anyone anyway I can, I take care of my kids, my family, the elderly when I was in the nursing home in the summer of 2009. I like that I can help people feel better in any way with just a smile on they face I'm happy too. I am a nice person responsible, caring, willing to always be there and help. i have a family of my own I can balance work and family at the same time
