I've worked as a pca for my mother for about 2 years until I graduated high school. I drove her to appointments, assisted with showering and cooking. I now work for my aunt who has lupus and take care of her at night by assisting her in the bathroom and making sure she is ok at night. I attend Holyoke Community College and I'm currently in the CNA program hoping to get my license soon! I recently finished my clinicals at a retirement community. I assisted with showering, feeding, and encouraging the residents to walk or join in activities. I love helping out others and felt that this is what I always wanted to do. I'm very shy at first but will open up very quickly!
