One of the most significant turning point in my life was when my late grandma was weak and unable to function physically. As a grandson, it was a pleasure for me to give care to my late grandma and it became one of my turning points I have the skills and characteristics to become a caregiver. During that time also, I was studying nursing back in the year 2004 in the Philippines, and the skills that I've learned at school I applied every knowledge that I possess to my grandma such as turning and repositioning her on the bedside to give comfort, assisting her ambulate, and to socialize with her. What I really like being a Caregiver is I interact and learn with my clients about their past life, to give them exercises to improve their mobility, provide them with nutritious and healthy meals for them in order for them to maintain their physical health, and to provide them basic safety procedures. One of the significant achievements that I am proud of is that I am happily married to my wife because having a life partner will give me inspiration on becoming of what I am and also I am very proud that I received an honor's award for two consecutive semesters at West Los Angeles College which gives me also motivation to work hard and to believe that I achieve better. I am very sociable person, outgoing, positive outlook in life, team player, a passionate cook, loves outdoors, compassionate, has strong work ethic, and I have a strong medical background.
