About Erena

I am a 55-year-old mother of 5 and grandmother of 4. My husband and I have been married for 17 years, and we resided in SC. To be closer to our aunt, who is now 103 years old, brought us to SC so we could be there to care for her when she needed assistance. When I was 16, I became a CNA because I always had a great love and compassion to care for the elderly. I made it my goal to bring them happiness and comfort and make their lives more joyful. I love the wisdom and knowledge they share with me when providing companionship. I had also had to experience becoming a caregiver personally for my first husband at the age of 24; I was his caregiver, provider, wife, lover, and friend for 12 years before he went home to be with the lord at the age of 53. I love people, and I love to help put a smile on their faces. I always say God gave me the gift of help and I do my best to utilize that gift every chance I get.
