What makes me a great caregiver? I love people and i like to help others that is needed. Why i become a caregiver well i started in the early 90's when i came to bakersfield and i thought it was interesting so i worked a while until i was sick so i never went back but late 90's i was helping a friend and i have another job at the time so i was working 2 jobs in homecare and childcare i loved them both. So when my son turned 18 i apply for IHSS IN HOME SUPPORT SERVICE AND I BEEN WITH THEM EVER SINCE 2013 AND STILL THERE PULSE I GO TO SCHOOL AT NIGHT TO BE AN MEDICAL ASSISTANT.WHAT I LIKE ABOUT BEING A CAREGIVER I LOVE TO HERE THEY STORIES ABOUT THEM GROWING UP. I LIKE TO MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY AND MAKE THEM SMILE AND LAUGH. WHAT IS A PERSONAL ACHIEMENT THAT I AM PROUD OF THAT I LIKE TO GET MY WORK DONE RIGHT AND THAT PEOPLE APPRECIATE ME OF WHAT I'VE DONE.
