I became a caregiver because my mother became ill after she retired. I cared for her for 3yrs.After that I decided to get my CNA certification. What I like about being a caregiver is , helping people who can't help themselves, maybe being the one person who asks how they're doing, and give encouragement. The personal achievement i'm most proud of is my marriage to my husband. We were together 32yrs. He became ill in 2006 and passed away in 2011.He was on dialysis for 5yrs. I'm 56yrs. old , I have 2 sons 28 & 39, 2 grandchildren, and I like helping people, and I like to laugh.
