I decided to become a caregiver 24 years ago because I have a passion for the elderly. I took care of both of my parents at home when they were ill up until the time each of them passed away. I realize in my years how important it is to have your family or someone who cares for you as if you were; there by your side through the aging process. In my experience elderly people do a lot better and live better and longer when they're in their own setting. They do better when they have a structured unit of people surrounding them to care for them and that includes the caregiver. I have went back to school for several things in the medical field and I keep going back to care giving. This is my passion.
