I'm very enthusiastic about helping older people. I've always helped my grandparents whenever they're going through tough times or need help. Recently, I helped my grandma cure her foot. She had stepped on a nail and she went to the doctor. Furthermore, the doctor told her that she had to be treated at home every week to prevent an amputation since she's diabetic. I would go every Wednesday to be with her and help her heal her foot by cleaning the wound and applying medicine to it. This made me realize how much I was interested in being a caregiver because older people struggle to do certain tasks that are easier for the younger generation, such as showering, cooking, getting out of bed and washing clothes. I know that one day I will grow old as well and more than likely there's a possibility I will need help to complete similar tasks like those. I want to be able to help older people and make them realize how special they are and that they're not alone.
