Being a caregiver you MUST have the Empathy and compassion. It is essential that a caregiver feel the desire to this kind of Job. By showing both empathy and compassion, caregivers should let the client they are caring to know that they care about them or the person and want to do what they can to help them. To me, A \"Good caregivers\" are those who naturally have an urge to help others. Often times, they are people who have always placed a priority on helping other people. They want to make the world a better place and they do it with one home care patient at a time. Becoming a good home caregiver isn't something that will necessary happen immediately, but if the basic qualities are there, those people can develop their skills over time to become great!!!!
