Caregiving is in my heart and soul; I am a 35 year veteran of the field with a caring and compassionate demeanor. Growing up, I was raised and adopted by my grandparents who were loving, caring parents to me. In all, they had 9 children and with such great interaction, I always felt special with them and I was compelled to carry on this spirit because they chose to occupy their time raising me and my siblings, when they should have been enjoying the fruits of their labor. I made it my life's work to care for them in their latter years as they did for me in my formative years. It is this upbringing tha t helped to forge this special bond with the elderly, as I see them as my mom and dad and I take great pride in caring for them as if they were my own parents. I am loyal all the way to the end, and it is my hope that the day I am that age, I will be treated with dignity and respect as well. In my heart I always knew I would be a caregiver and the love I have for the elderly is why I chose this type of career. My longevity and reverence for this field is what drives me to be my very best every day. ... more
