I decided to become a caregiver after having the opportunity to witness a caregiver caring for my grandmother many years ago. The caregiver went above and beyond her job description to ensure my grandmother was as healthy and happy as possible. I saw the positive impact she not only had on my grandmother but our family as well. I knew I wanted to have a career where I made a difference in a the life of others, especially the elderly. I enjoy assisting others live joyful and fulfilling lives. Making a person smile at low times in their life and being a helpful hand. I feel all seniors should live carefree lives in their golden years and I will do everything to ensure peace and happiness. One of my greatest personal achievements is committing to a healthy lifestyle with a previous client and both of us was able to lose a tremendous amount of weight and half the medications we were taking. I say previous client because after four years of working with her, she no longer needed the services of a caregiver. She has since rejoined the working class and is living independently. I am a 42 year old mother of 5 adult children and 1 teenager. I am a non smoker.I enjoy reading and watching old French movies with no sound. I would love to travel someday. I have over 15 years of experience working with the elderly and disabled.
