5. What caused you to get into caregiving initially?
I think I have always enjoyed caring for others. It started with my grandfather in my senior year of high school, I wanted to spend my last semester with him at home taking care of him. I promised my mom I would keep up with schoolwork, but they put him in a nursing home instead family. My family wanted me to focus on finishing school.
