About John

I have parents who are elderly and sometimes they need my help by giving them a massage and their feet make sure that they take their medication if they need a ride somewhere to take them. I've also had a grandmother who had a disability who I would help my mom at times to carry her and move her sitting location to a other. When my grandfather was alive and could barely help himself and no one had the time to help him. I feel that as a human being who cares about people and still see the good in people, I want to be able to be of help and service to anyone who is in need of someone else to give them attention and love they lack from the collection of a family member or too busy to help a family member in need. One day i myself will be in need of help myself and i would like to personally have someone care enough for my well-being and care me and trust that I'll be in good hands. My grandfather always had stories to tell about his life and experience when I was a kid and that kept me so interested being around older people because they want to be heard and listened too and i enjoy hearing their stories and learned from them as well of being someone in their live to care about them too. I feel my biggest achievement that i can be so proud of is being who i am as a person in general and a caring gifted heart to love and care for people i hardly know just as god has loved me and us the same way. I know what it is like to feel forgotten and ignored and to know anyone in this life time feelings such way breaks my heart and if i could i would want to make at least one person life feel better. I guess i never really realized I've been a caregiver all my life rather helping an animal and raising a lost kitten from giving my last five bucks for gas to a man who was homeless going through trash and sharing a meal to a woman outside a restaurant with children who werent allowed to enter because they didn't wanna lose paying customers.
