I started caring for the seniors at an early age. My grandmother had a stroke when I was a teenager and I helped my mother take care of her. After my grandmother died, I decided to go to the nursing school and help the sick, but unfortunately along the way and being young, I diverted to another career which I did for years. I decided to go back to my passion 15 years ago, which was taking care of the seniors. I went to do my Certified Nursing Assistant training and completed. I started working for an assisted living and worked there for eight years, and at the same time working with different home health agencies. At one time, I got a part time job in the nursing home where I also gained a lot of experience in caring for clients who are bed bound. I have came across a lot of clients with a lot of challenges, and that is what makes the job I do more interesting. You find that there are some very difficult client and you have to know how to deal with them in a way which will not upset them, but at the same time give them a chance to be in control of their life. I like my job because it makes me happy to see that I have helped a senior who is not able to help themselves and put a smile on their faces.
