It is my belief that all ppl regardless of their need are intitled to the best care possible for a full recovery or in many cases a private transition into their life's end journey...dignity and respect. Being a caregiver is one of life's rewards, those needing care are greatful and I would hope that if I need care someday I would have someone like myself. As far as achievements thus far is helping extended families learn and understand what their loved one may not be able to express to them. Keeping clients on track even if they don't have improvement ...giveing tools to live life out the best way possible with encouragement.

What helps me be the great caregiver would be my personality and my happiness of smiles. What attracted me to become a caregiver was seeing one of my friends mom caring for a senior person at her home and watch her do it,and ask me to help her. "It was amazing". Most thing I enjoy about caregiver would be being around the seniors and enjoy good times/bond. Personal achievement I'm proud of would be,being there for them when they need somebody talk to

Personality traits or expertise; I've got a big heart and I feel that helped me along the way. What attracted me to being a caregiver; I took care of my grandmother when she was in her final stages of life & it was very rewarding. I was also a caregiver for 6 months to a lady whom grew on me like my own grandmother and everyday would push me to go back to school for my certification and has since passed. I enjoy being able to be someone else's companion and giving them the company and support they may not get in everyday life. Life is crazy, but being a caregiver is definitely about the one on one time you get with your resident(s).

I am a very outgoing and loving person. Caring for people comes 2nd nature for me. When my grandmother got ill i moved back to take care of her because she refused to go to a nursing home. That experience really made me want to get into becoming a caregiver. The fulfillment of just knowing i am helping people to be able to stay in their homes is an awesome feeling, and knowing that they are being taking care of by a person who really care and will treat them as her own family. I have 2 sons so bathing or changing another person is no biggie to me. I would be happy to help anyone old or young no matter the circumstances.
