The reason why i became a caregiver was because i wanted to better myself, i wanted to help people. I knew it would be rewarding but no where near as rewarding as it really is! I love being a caregiver. I use to wake up and dread going to work! Now i love it so much, i just love being able to be with them with their family can't, Its so much more than just a paycheck to me. As a caregiver most of the time we are the first ones they see before they go to bed, and the first when they wake up. We have the choice be able to make there day wonderful! I have that chance that even though there sad about being in the position they are, that they know that they are still loved and still cared for! That no matter what someone will be there holding there hand! I am definitely emotionally involved in what i do! & thats what makes it so amazing !!
