I am a divorced seventy two year old lady. I started working with my neighbor in 2013. I had stayed home after retiring from Alcatel after twenty-five years. She had MS and was confined to a wheel chair and we had been neighbors over twenty years. When she and her husband decided to hire someone to help they asked me and, this is how I became a Caregiver. I worked for them about a year and half, she became worse and wasn't able to get up out of bed so I had to quit. After a few months staying at home again a friend told me about an Agency like this one so I signed up with them and went back to work.I wish I had done it sooner.I love working,it helps me to feel better and I like making others feel good. I treat others the way I want to be treated.Life is too short to let one day pass and think you didn't do everything to be Happy and help the people around you feel the same.
