To be honest I didn't start of as a caregiver. I worked as a DCS \"Direct Care Staff\" for children and adults with severe mental and physical disabilities for over 10 year's. And I really enjoyed my job especially working with the kid's. They were very loving and strong willed and with that you can't help to become close to them. Which bring me to how I became a caregiver! One of my client's lived with his grandmother and her health started to decline but she was determined to still provide care for her grandson but she also in search for care for herself. She loved the care that I provided for her g randson so I was hired by her to care for her also. Being a caregiver has taught me so much more about myself, thing's that goes unnoticed to some people. Like patience, compassion, empathy just to say a few that I can say about myself. Being a caregiver is not just sitting there babysitting but being there for who ever needs that extra push, or encouragement, or just someone there to listen. All of my client's have expressed to me many time's how thankful they are for me and that's when I truly know that this meant for me. ... more
