I became a caregiver when my father became ill . I took on the responsibility to care for him and make him comfortable in his final days . I want to continue on being a caregiver because of my undying love for my own mother who died of stroke couple of years after my father passed . My compassionate nature and high level of commitment to my work combined with my hands on experience in personal care makes me a perfect candidate for a great caregiver . Every time I work with the patient it always gives me the feeling of satisfaction and determination to help them live their lives to the fullest with dig nity , happy , safe and well nourished . ... making sure that their needs are met from the smallest task to a task that is challenging for them to do . I am trustworthy and responsible person who take great pleasure in all kinds of caregiving tasks. ... more
