I am a great caregiver because I want my clients to know that I am there for them in any way I can help. I became a caregiver because it is a positive and rewarding job. I like being a caregiver because that means I am working as a health care professional doing what I love. I think it has been a personal achievement using my Associate of Science degree working as a caregiver, and I am proud of that. I really feel like I get to know the patients that I work for, and try to be creative when working on the job. I might try to play the guitar for a patient, read current events in the newspaper to a patient, or do the crossword puzzle. I am happy going for walks, like to watch movies, and enjoy reading magazines.

In my adult life I've had many jobs but no fulfillment until I started caring for others. I found my purpose and calling. I truly enjoy/ love being a caregiver it brings so much joy and self gratification. My mother played a big part of why I love being a caregiver. seeing the love she gave and the return love was something not to mention I had to care for my siblings. To know that a client feels safe and trust me with their care means a lot. To see them smile or just help them through a rough day knowing that they can count on me is a great reward. I've had a client I had just started with ask me, Is this just a job or do you care? I care about what I do. This is one of the biggest question that a client or family member has when looking for a caregiver. I smile all the time, staying positive, go beyond the call of duty, compassionate, caring, outgoing, patience,. etc. To have the opportunity to care for your love one or self would be a privilege and a blessing.
