I believe to be a good caregiver you must have been a caregiver to family or friends. You cannot learn these things of compassion, and being a advocate in a classroom, it's much more involved. I have worked at the largest medical insurance provider, a mental health institution, and Prov Hosp ER Dept. So learned a lot there but it wasn't until I had 3 children of my own that I got over 20 years of experience. One of my daughters has Autism. I had to be her voice and advocate to get the best State services. The recent agency that was caring for her was shut down by the State for numerous violations includ ing embezzlement. I pointed out these things about 6 years ago but the corruption in the management blocked further disclosure to the State. It was heartbreaking to see this happen. I got labeled as mentally ill and to be ignored. I didn't care and continued pushing the envelope and got the attention of the Asst Attorney General for Child Abuse and Neglect. I have worked at Nordstom for many many years and Embassy Suites as the night Manager of entire hotel. However impressive it sounds my calling and job I am most proud of is Mother. It's taught me that a job should be your passion and not measured by your paycheck. ... more
