I never thought about being a nurse or any type of caregiver for older people before. Then my mother got sick and Dell Computers had just shut down their consumer sales side so I decided I would stay home and take care of her. As she got worse I moved her in with me and had the best time of my life with her over the next 3 years. My mother and I have always been close but through this time we really got to know each other and became the very best of friends even when she couldn't remember my name. She might not have been able to tell you my name but she knew I was someone she could trust and that meant everything. I have since worked for Senior Care Agencies and have done private sitting. Being there for someone when they need a little help is a great way to spend your day.
