I am a certified caregiver. I've taken the training few years ago when it started to boom. I really enjoyed while taking that course. In order to pass it you really need to have a strong stomach. Specially when it's time for the on-the-job training. I've experienced caring for the elders in a hospice and children at the orphanage.

I understand why there are people wanted to be caregivers. Here in the Philippines life is hard for other people, so others tend to go foreign places just to do care giving. They want to earn money for their family. For me, I'm contented with what job I have and I have no plans of taking the care giving training. I think it's a very hard job and you'll miss your family when you go.

I agree with your point. coz here in Philippine though we have job but still not enough to sustain the daily lives. We need to go abroad hoping to have a more stable job that would give more than enough with the needs of our family. Yes it is very hard job. Well good for you that you have a good income. What if you don't have enough money for your family will you still not work for it?

nope. i cant do that work. ive watched one movie from our country. its all about care giving. how do it and what kind of work is it when you are in other coutry. i dont think i can stand with the smell of poop. i cant do it. its fine with me to feed them or helping them to take a bath or change their clothes but not their diapers. i cant do that.
