I had problems finding a job after I got let go from a previous job. I was at the end of my rope and then I saw an ad in the newspaper for a caretaker for an assisted living facility that specialized in caring for the Mentally Ill. Fate would have it. I started out working there passing medications and cleaning the facility. Now I am a nurse at the mental health hospital 2 blocks away and still work at the assisted living part time as gratitude for what this place gave me.
