I became a caregiver because when I was 12 years old my cousin got hit by a car and he was (back then in the 70's) was brain damaged and called retarded. So because his mom worked his siblings (my cousins) and my siblings use to take care of him. I enjoyed taking care of my cousin and making sure he had everything he needed and watching a smile come upon his face everytime we did something to make him happy within himself. What I like about being a caregiver is seeing the smiles on my clients faces after having an awesome great day or seeing them do something that they didn't think they could do. Also k nowing my worth and input that I had in putting that smile on there face. A personal achievement I am proud of is being able to help others who are in need of help and watching them grow in their environment to be able to be independent and happy. I am a very passionate person and I get great joy out of pleasing others and watching them smile. I'm a people's person, quick learner, flexible, friendly, outgoing, team player, willing to learn new techniques, dependable and punctual. I am willing and able to be caregiver for others so that they may enjoy life for themself and not feel like they are a burden to others. I enjoy everything that I do in this field of home healthcare. ... more
