1. What makes you a great caregiver? If I may, I'd prefer to leave it up to my references, clients, former clients, family members of the clients and others to say what kind of caregiver I am. I would only say that personal integrity and humility (i.e. putting others first) are absolutely core to the kind of person I endeavor to be in this life. (And I invite reminders from others when it even appears to be needed.) 2. Why did you become a caregiver? I became a caregiver because I love people, all peoples. And it is my humble opinion that serving others is the second best way to demonstrate genuine, s incere love, as defined by N.T. writers. Not that I've read him, but I very much appreciate this Douglas Adams' quote: "To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity." 3. What do you like about being a Caregiver? I'm especially gratied and fulfilled when the care that I provide not only satisfies the needs of the client directly, but it also helps family members to meet their moral and oftentimes overwhelming responsibilities to care for an aging , ill or disabled family member. 4. What is a personal achievement you are proud of? I once made the team assembled to care for a quadriplegic client. And as a team member, I had the privilege of providing her with home healthcare. I also once successfully self-prepared for a difficult Microsoft exam. After studying at home, I passed a proctored exam. Also self instructed, I can speak some Spanish and some Mandarin Chinese. 5. Tell us something about yourself. I'm a grandfather of 4. I'm a lifelong student of the Bible, the most amazing and life-changing book that has ever been written, in my opinion. I was recently selected to be a member of a team dedicated to the care of a loved one living with Autism. I enjoy walks, board games, audiobooks, soft music, teaching ESL to seniors, and more. ... more
