What makes me a great caregiver is that I am able to find the good in any situation which helps people feel more comfortable and relaxed when stressful situation occur .I became a caregiver because of my grandmother , when u was younger I had to take care of her as she developed alzheimers . I gained temporary hospice care over her as time went on, she forgot how to swallow and to do many other things as time went on .so we decided put a feeding tube in her stomach so that we know she was getting enough food and that's when I learnt how to do G-tube feeding .what I like about being a caregiver is that you learn something new everyday and that everybody needs are different so being patient and actually listen to the person feelings and needs helps them with their daily living
