I am a great caregiver because of the way I'm able to relate to people of any kind, the old, the young, disabled, and the mentally ill. There is a spirit that I possess that draws people to feel comfortable around me . I became a caregiver because I grew up around a lot of older relative and once they became sickly I was there to take care of them, and my greatest accomplishment is to volunteer in the Hospice program for Baylor Scott and White when I first came to Texas and was able to relieve the families of some to the burden of their loved ones by giving them time to take care of themselves and o ther family members. ... more
