I became a caregiver because about17 years ago my dad took sick, and I had to help to take care of him so after that he passed away. about 6 years ago my son became ill, he develop lung disease. I took care of him too. so on December 21st of 2013 he past away he was 36 years of age.so that's what made me become a caregiver. that's part of why I like about being a caregiver. my personal achievement is that it make me feel better knowing I was there for my dad and my son. I am 59 years of age I have been a care provider for almost 4 years now and it gives me joy knowing I can make that person day special. and to let them know they are always needed to be around. they're the ones that paved the way for us. I salute every last one of them
