I have been around the elderly my whole life, my mother is a caregiver and growing up I loved to go to work with her. The environment is something I find natural and comfortable. I love the smiles and the thought of never knowing what's going to happen, everyday is a new day. I'm a great cleaner, orginized and patient. Working with the elderly I have found they need time to do everyday things. Achievements are something I find everyone has everyday weather it's cleaning the house in one day to following my dreams and climbing a mountain. My most dear and earned accomplishments was receiving my scholarships for my college education, while finishing my last year of high school (on honors) as well as received my HCA and Nurse Delegation. I have worked with the elderly for about 4.5 years and I enjoyed everyday.
