It has always been my dream to help others. I am twenty years old, and I have care-giving experience with not only babies and children, but with the elderly as well. My experiences were voluntary as well as paid. I worked for a company called Assisting Hands Home Care as a companion for an 84 year old widower with dementia. I was able to watch television with him, accompany him on walks, cook his breakfast, lunch, and dinner... etc. The funny moments were almost endless. I love being able to touch the lives of strangers and build bonds. I feel that this is my purpose.
