I think I am a great caregiver because I know there are things people do not like to do as one. I think it is very important for clients to have someone take care of their needs when they need it. A great caregiver will be there on time and stay to help a client until they don't need them anymore. It is very good to make the client feel happy and important just because they may feel they are not. I became a caregiver because I used to take care of my grandma and I see all the things she can't do anymore and it makes me feel good I can help her with anything she needs. I enjoy having conversations with people and learning about their background and their history. being able to help someone who needs it makes me feel good about myself and knowing their families trust me is a big part of why I love helping out. I am very proud of getting my QMAP which means I would be able to pass out medications. That is something that is very important because if I ever have someone I need to remind I would be able to pass their meds for them or just remind them to do it so they don't forget.
