I became a caregiver once my father was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, so I have been taking care of him as well as my mom when she is not working. what I like about being a caregiver is that I like helping others who can not help themselves. I like looking at a patient when there happy I'm happy because there not alone when the person needs help. My personal achievement that I am proud of, is when I worked at my old nursing home as a housekeeper at Ellis Manor I've became very friendly with the residents and then started helping them that became my passion because someone else needed my help other than my child weather it was helping change a resident to helping a person get up from a fall so I'm proud at the fact that I was able to help someone else in need. About myself I am 27 years old I've worked with children as well as adults. I'm very energetic and I thrive to work I believe in working with the families of what special needs of any demands that the family needs when it comes to how the families wants to deal with their family member.
