Being a caregiver is second nature for me. I became a caregiver because I love people and enjoy being helpful. I am very capable of child care and elderly care. I like giving to someone in need while making their life as comfortable as possible, maintaining their dignity, and assisting in maintaining their independance when possible.. I owned, operated and directed 2 day care centers in the early 80s. I have assisted in the care of the elderly for 5 plus years, including a lady for 5 years until her death. I loved being there for her and her family. My family became her family. With the family's permission, I would take her out to lunch or dinner, grocery shopping, Astros games, church, various functions, including, but not limited to my family holiday gatherings. I believe that all people deserve the best of care. I am loving compassionate and responsible.
