I have been a caregiver for more than 9 years and “still love what I do”. I love providing home care services to those that would otherwise not be able to do so. The smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel I have done my job right. I have always enjoyed helping people so I know I am doing the right thing. I have also worked in nursing facilities and hospitals. My latest job was in a rehabilitation setting where I enjoyed providing rehab services and watching patients go from 0 to 90 with therapy goals that helped them to return home to their families.
