I'm 35 years old, Male, I started care-giving when I was young and my father was wheelchair and I would have bathe him, get dressed, change him, help him in and out of bed, and change his leg injury dressings.
I just recently found my passion again for care-giving when I was offered to do in-home health care for a family friend. I would cook, clean, food prep, administer medication, take them to their doctor's appointments, go to the market, shower assist as necessary, and provide companionship.
Between working with my Father, my family friends, and my actually job experience, I have a little more than 10 years experience in personal care-giving.

What attracted me to being a caregiver, when my grandma passed away, I knew that my grandfather was lonely and needed some assistance in his care. I started reading his mail to him, taking him around to his appointments, shopping, cleaning his home and just keeping him company and I knew from there that I wanted to help anyone in need.
A neighbor had Cerebral Palsy and she was getting worse. She needed help with transportation to her appointments and shopping, cleaning her apartment.
