Kelly from Florida

I spent a good 20 years caregiving for my father who passed a couple years ago. Right after that my mother became severely ill and I am her caregiver now. I love what I do. I am trained and experienced with this job because I worked for many years in nursing homes plus I educated myself over the years. I am a medical assistant, pharmacy technician and I worked in mental health care as well. I was a nurse assistant in my younger years. I am not trying to brag but I know that I am especially good at care taking because I know what it’s like to be the patient depending on medical staff.
