About deana

I am a hard working mother of 2 girls. I have been caring for my grandmother at various times over the last 8 years since my mom passed away during times of sickness. I have cared for many persons with developmental and intellectual disabilities over the years. I have worked in their homes helping them with every day life skills such as toileting, showers, cooking, house keeping. I enjoyed working with these individuals so much I went back to school so that I could get a job in the social work field to fight for these peoples rights when they do not have a voice or can not raise their hand. I would say that my most personal achievement was getting a person that had shut himself off from the world and not talk to anyone to talk to me and eventually to everyone by me being persistent and not giving up on him. It is a very rewarding job when you can help someone that can not help themselves. It is just my kind nature that I was blessed with that leads me to be a caregiver, I have always felt that I could save the world one person at a time and I continue to try each day. I have a huge heart and the patience of Job and love to learn and share life lessons.

I've always enjoyed caring for the needs of others. Which started at a young age assisting family members with all different disease's/disorders . Also was a live in care giver to a lovely lady for 3yrs and at the age of 101 it was amazing to sit a listen to all of her life struggles and accomplishment's. Its always been a rewarding to not just know but to feel that you made a difference in the final days of someone's life k owi g you done any and everything to help make their final days as pleasant as possible.

I became a caregiver because my grandfather had Alzheimer's before he passed away and I helped take care of him. I know how important it is to the family to have their families taken care of. I think my favorite part of being a caregiver is seeing my individuals accomplish something and them smiling.
