My empathy, compassion and understanding are what makes me a great caregiver. I became a caregiver because I care!! I have the passion to serve. Realistically I needed a job and not until I started in this profession I myself realised how much I enjoyed doing this job because I really cared. It reminded me so much of when I was only about 16 years old when I had to care for my sickly grandfather til his last breath. It's always fulfilling and rewarding when I see my patient recover from an illness when in my care. Also when we develop a strong bond that's beyond patient and caregiver relationship, we become family. Everyone I have cared for I have cared to the best of my ability. Special mention to a Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) patient who became a dear friend. The fact that we communicated so well I could understand body language and expressions and even in his debilitating state he still made my work easy because of the love and affection I gave him; that was a great achievement for me.
