I became a caregiver while caring for my mother who had Lewy Body Dementia and 2 years later cared for my aunt who also had dementia. I have previous experience working in nursing facilities. What I like about caregiving is knowing that no matter how simple one task may be I made a difference in someone's life. My personal achievement of importance is that I raised a son as a single mom and my son is an MD,PhD at St Jude's Hospital in Memphis, TN. Something about myself...(wow...I don't toot my own horn) After working at several different professions and directly after a critical divorce I opted fo r a position I knew nothing about...Semi truck driver. I mastered the occupation, taught other women how to maneuver the equipment, was awarded safety metals, gifts etc. each year but presently I am no longer interested in driving trucks after spending nearly 3 decades behind the wheel. I am a church-going Christian and hold my faith in God very close to my heart, yet find it unnecessary to exploit my beliefs on others.
