About Brandon

I am a hardworking individual. I love working with others. I like meeting new people. I love helping the elderly. I am a fast paced learner. My grandpa attracted me to being a caregiver by showing me that no matter what someone that's in or not in a wheelchair will always need help no matter how old they are. I enjoy everything about being a caregiver because you get to learn a lot about an individual and you get to experience things you'd never thought you'd experience in your life. A personal achievement that I'm proud of is that I got to be my grandpas caregiver for 6-7 years and it was the best time of my life.
