Loretta’s Bio

I chose to become a caregiver for the sole reason of loving people and trying my best to provide assistance to them when they need it. My first position as a caregiver was in Home Care where, I bathe patients, did laundry, clean the house but, that wasn't enough. So, I started to work in the hospital and basically did the same thing, then I started working for Hospice, "my forever love". I was able to care for the terminally ill patient while assisting their family in preparing them for the inevitable, their death. I was 19 years when I started there and I was a little afraid but, once I knew my job, I became great at it, I worked there for 12 years and went to school to become a CMA, then, I started to work in the doctor's offices or clinics and learn how to care for patients with dignity while they're living. Becoming a healthcare provider is the best decision that I have ever made.
