When I became a caregiver I had no training what so ever. With the help of the two Individuals that I took care of they helped me learn everything I needed to know. From transfers, personal care, doctor appointments, medications, wound care, giving insulin, checking blood, an learning to talk to them,etc. As to being a caregiver I was raised around that type of thing my mother an aunt take care of my sister an cousin who are Handicapped. So being a caregiver is something I'm used to. The enjoyment about being a caregiver is knowing that they are okand happy. My personal achievement that I'm proud of was being able to finish beauty school.
