I became a caregiver to love and care for my personal clients from the elderly, babies, toddlers and school age children. I stated out taking care of my client's mother a few days a week in the nursing home. I would visit her, take her out groom her and have conversations with her which she was not receiving from the staff nor her family. I thoroughly enjoyed assisting this woman as she truly appreciated the companionship. Then I also have taken care of babies and toddlers as their nanny. This I did while I attended Cardiovascular Technology classes in the evening and in the day took care of the children. I am also a caregiver to my grandson, who has multiple diagnosis, including high functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder, seizures, asthma, and central sleep apnea. He attends school full time which allows me to work nights. I, too, enjoy working with children as they and I enjoy the one and one companionship. My personal achievement would be as a single parent without child support I put both my daughters through college and then went to cardiovascular school to be a tech., this was my goal when I got divorced and it was gratifying. I am a dedicated individual who cares for people and stands by my word.
