What makes me a great caregiver is that I do not only care for my patients I have worked with in the past, but I also always show them compassion and love no matter how busy I am. I have been a caregiver for five years now. I started in 2010, I have had many great memories through the years of being a caregiver. I became a caregiver because my mother is also one and I have a lot of the same traits as she does which are being caring, loving, kind, understanding, compassionate, and hard working. My greatest achievement of being a caregiver are not only the skills I have gained, but all the families I have brought joy to through the process. I have made some very close and loving friends that are family members of the patients I have cared for. So to me it is not only a job, it just comes natural and I love it.
