About Portia

What makes me a great caregiver is the passion that i have for my job, i always feel fulfilled and happy when i take care of people and see smiles of their faces. My reason for becoming a caregiver is my passion to care for people, i always wanted to be a nurse which i am now studying in school, i also have a lot of patience and i am very understanding. What i like about being a caregiver is the chance that i get to care for the person that i am taking care of and making them happy at the end of the day. The personal achievment i am proud of is when one of my clients grand-duaghter walked up to me and handed me a note which read "thank you for taking good care of my grandmother," i felt happy and complete knowing that i have worked hard to achieve this kind of appreciation from this family
