I have always been a caregiver for as long as I can remember. M y mother was a caregiver. I have a special needs older brother that's ten years older than me and he needs 24 hour care. that's where my experience comes into place. I personally didn't chose this profession I would say it chose me. This is my life to serve others. My personal achievement is I was there physically and emotionally to care for my favorite aunt that recently past of cancer. I honestly believe the reason why I am a caregiver and have been for almost twenty years is because of my immediate family. I have two siblings that meningitis as a child. One needing an intensive amount therapy. He didn't walk until he was nine years. Today, he can walk, run, feed himself but he still needs care. While I was in high school my mother went to an out of state funeral and came with a elderly uncle I never knew. Our immediate family cared for him the same way we cared for my brother, Peter. As a kid in school, it was because I had to. Later, as an adult, its because I chose to. To be a caregiver its just natural for me. I think what I enjoy mostly about being a helpful and needed.
