The one thing that attracted me to being a caregiver is when my father became sick with stage 3 lung cancer it changed my life and made me look at helping elder people different. I would take of him mostly at night to help my mother, but he meant the world to me and he passed away 8-20-21 and they nearly broke my heart, but I knew I had to keep helping the next person. I love having conversations with elderly people because they can teach me somethings that I haven't not yet learned. The laughter and their stories or what their going through and have been through. I love their saying "NEVER GET OLD."
