Being a caregiver is a responsibility I feel fortunate to have a substantial of experience in. I was only 12 years old when my father had an accident that left him completely paralyzed. My family and I took full responsibility in all his care, he required 24 hr care. At a very young age I learned how to handle breathing machines, suction tracks, bathe a completely immobile body, grooming, transfers from bed to wheelchair, and wheelchair to bed. I am trained to work with urine catheters, g-tube, range of motion, skin sore care, bowel and bladder care. I have had a great privilege to adapt to a busy care giving lifestyle, and since day one I am so thankful I was given the opportunity to know everything I know. My experience as a caregiver has extended to senior care, dementia care, and other physical disabilities. New experiences are like challenges, and I am pretty good persevering. I learn a lot by meeting and working with new people. I have one year left to obtain my BA in Psychology.
