Having the patience to care for another person better than you would care for yourself. A great caregiver is a person who can give their own time to care for another person whole heartly and honest. I cared for my grandmother at the age of fourteen, she was dying of cancer. She was the first person I ever loved and cared for. Years later I became her son's caregiver my father. Enjoying the time you can spend with a person in thier sick and ill time is so important to me, being able to give a person some happyiness when its a sad time. Being to be with both grandma and son my father was so important to stay being a caregiver. A person who cares.
