I became a caregiver for the first time in 2011. In the beginning I was very unsure that this was for me, but it began to give me passion, and excitement to get up every morning and come to work. And I believe "if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life!" I worked for an Assisted Living for 8 years, and absolutely loved doing what I do. I am very loving, compassionate, attentive, punctual, professional, I have respect, empathy and patience to the needs of those I care for. I provided repeated encouragement. I love to care for the elderly, listen to their individual stories of how they grew up and how they made their living. I became and stayed a caregiver, because I believe it was my calling, and I feel as if I'm doing the Lords work. If I dont get anything productive done in my day, except for making someone smile, and turning their bad day into a good day, then I have done my job. I have been voted employee of the month multiple times. I have achieved being RN delegated to assist with all forms of medication. And, my most honorable achievement is being part of many senior's lives and their families during this stage of their life.
