Becoming a Senior Caregiver: What led Fatima (originally from Morocco) to a career in caregiving?

What led you to begin a career in caregiving? I have free time that I would like to invest in helping those who need someone to take care of.  I expect to share some quality time with elderly, and learn more from valuable experiences of other caregivers. I am very sensitive and understand well the needs of elderly and how much it's important for them to live in good conditions and be treated decently.

What is one of your most memorable caregiving experiences?  I sincerly took care of my mother in law (she was 80 years old), the first time I saw her I understood that the best way to make her happy is to let her be living amoung us (my husband and me). She was alone with no ability to manage herself. At that time I were 36, and just got married with her son, regarding her fragility I was the one who proposed to do the best for helping her. She had been cared by some mades who really didn't treate her well.   

How many years have you been a caregiver? My experience in caregiving was for about 5 years with my mother in law.

What has being a caregiver taught you? It nourrished my spirit, and let me feel happiness that really came from the bottom of my heart.I learned that one day I'll be in the same case, may be I'll be unable to manage my self with any help. I understood that life learns us how to bear hardness if we try to make other happier than us. I beleive that all persons need to live with dignity at all phases of their lifes. 

How do you manage the stress that comes with caregiving? I overcome the stress by thinking of the goodness I speard arround me, and God always helps me to find my way to love others. I have a 6 years old son, I hope that one day he will take care of me when the time comes.
