1. I became a caregiver because I have dedicated my life to serving others. I used to help my grandmother with my grandfather whom suffered from Alzheimer's when I was 13 years old. From a young age I learned the importance of treating others with dignity and respect. 2. I find being a caregiver rewarding because I know I am making a difference in someone's life 3. My love of people has led me to attaining a Bachelor of Nursing in Australia. 4. I have strong work ethics NOTE: I now live in Houston Texas

    I'm a very patient person and I sympathize with the person in pain, because everything ive going through. I like to work with the elderly because it makes me feel that im not just making money but also that I'm doing something good as a human being. you never stop learning with them. they're full of wisdom. I also have learn and get so much experience working with patients all this years specially with cases of alzhimers and dementia. I worked for Brookdale that is a very good and big home assistant living. I worked in the area of patients with dementia. but i love the experience i had in the past working one to one. i think i can give the best of me to that one person that needs me with him/her. i worked 2 years with a person that was in a lot of pain and I took a good care of him. I stay with him until his last breath. that was the best time I had as a caregiver because we gave each other a lot of our best.
