About Bettina

I became a caregiver at a early age at 16 and didn't know it at the time. My stepfather became ill and mother had to work. I had to change his ostomy pouch bag. After a while it was nothing. Watching my mother over the years careing for him and others it became part of me and I began loving to care for people. After my mother died I took in my uncle who was born handicapped. I promised her I would never send him away if anything ever happened to her. I cared for him 16 years. It wasn't easy trying to work. Two of the caregivers became two of my closest friends. After he died I knew that was my calling. I knew nothing else to do and i was great at it. I went to school but never got certified. I have three children, 8 grandchildren. I've been careing for 20 years now and wouldn't trade it for anything. If I can made a person smile and make their day better then my day is better.
