I BECAME A CAREGIVER WHEN MY UNCLE FOUND OU HE WAS DYING FROM HIV. ONCE HE GOT TO SICK TO BATHE OR DRESS HIS SELF COOK OR DO ANYTHING FOR HIS SELF I STARTED DOING IT. THEN IN 2010 I APPLIED AT PRIMECARE HOME HEALTHCARE IN HEMPSTEAD TX. AND I REALLY ENJOYED HELPING THE PEOPLE I WORKED FOR AND TAKING AWAY SOME OF THE STRESS FROM THEIR FAMILY. I ENJOY TO TAKE CARE OF OTHER PEOPLE IT MAKES ME HAPPY TO COOK CLEAN OR JUST KEEP SOMEONE ELSE COMPANY. MY LAST PATIENT WAS FROM 2012-2014 HE HAD DEMENTIA AND PASSED AWAY IN JULY 2014. HE WAS A NICE MAN VERY LONELY AFTER HIS WIFE DIED SO WE SPENT TIME TALKING ABOUT HER AND HIS DAUGHTER HE LOVED FOR ME TO MAKE BIG MEALS FOR HIM AND LOVED WATCH LAW &ORDER AND LIFETIME MOVIES. I AM A VERY HONEST CARING LOVING PERSON I GO OUT OF MY WAY TO MAKE SURE MY PATIENT IS HAPPY AND THAT ALL THE NEEDS ARE TAKEN CARE OF.
