About Shelby

I've been a caregiver my whole life, well sense i can remember. I'm the oldest out of four, two of which are disabled. They are both completely dependent on people to help them with day to day task , but both in different ways. Joseph , the 2nd oldest was born blind, with cerbal palsy, later on he developed chrons disease and lost eye, still very hard for him even though he cant see. Kayla the 3rd siblings was born with seizures so bad they damaged her brain and slowed her down a lot. I have expertise in pretty much everything you need to be a caregiver, cleaning, feeding, changing, exercise, mental state of mind, understanding people with a disability is what iv done my whole life and i love every second of it. Nothing attracted me to becoming a caregiver its something i always have done and something i enjoy doing. I enjoy every part of it, from making them smile, to just being there when their sick. The good and the bad cause in this line of work the most important part is patience, understanding, and listening. I love seeing the growth they can make and i also love that i get to help some one that cant do it for them self. A personal achievement i have made just making them smile and happy, nothing in the world can compare to that.
