    For two years I took care of her daughter three times a week. We usually went to Curves and then did a fun activity or had lunch out. She was able to go places but had short-term memory loss. They moved to Terlingua, TX recently.

To give and share with clients, one must be compassionate and patient and have an understanding that those needing care would like for the caregiver to understand their needs. There happens to be an advantage to being a caregiver that can put themselves in the shoes and situation of those with the need. My joy is realized when the needs are filled and the cared for people are grateful and thankful. I want to give the care and experience the joy often. I have experienced this joy with my parents as I cared for them. Currently I am a part-time caregiver for various clients providing them all the assistance they may need.
