Caregiving is in my heart and soul; I am a 35 year veteran of the field with a caring and compassionate demeanor. Growing up, I was raised and adopted by my grandparents who were loving, caring parents to me. In all, they had 9 children and with such great interaction, I always felt special with them and I was compelled to carry on this spirit because they chose to occupy their time raising me and my siblings, when they should have been enjoying the fruits of their labor. I made it my life's work to care for them in their latter years as they did for me in my formative years. It is this upbringing that helped to forge this special bond with the elderly, as I see them as my mom and dad and I take great pride in caring for them as if they were my own parents. I am loyal all the way to the end, and it is my hope that the day I am that age, I will be treated with dignity and respect as well. In my heart I always knew I would be a caregiver and the love I have for the elderly is why I chose this type of career. My longevity and reverence for this field is what drives me to be my very best every day.
