I took care of my grandmother who had Alzheimer's for many years at her home. When she was in a nursing home, I did a lot for her as well as she only allowed me to care for her without getting very upset and mean. I also cared for my grandfather who had cancer and also my best friend who died from brain cancer. I did receive my CNA degree from Waubonsee College. I worked in 2 different nursing homes back in 1987.
