My desire to become a caregiver developed when I was working as a homecare nurse. It was then that I realized the important role a caregiver. Taking care of patient at their homes exposed me to be sensitive to the holistic need of the people. Most adults at homes are lacking some physically, emotional, and spiritual caregiving needs. Some need services in their homes at their convenient, while others want to receive the care at the nursing homes but they cannot afford the expensive nature of the structured facilities. For instance, during my homecare experiences, I interviewed many seniors and learned that most adults love caregivers coming to take care of them at their homes. Many told me that they want to receive care at their home because it make them feel safe and in charge. Some senior citizens also told me that the thought of going to a nursing home make them sick. Many said that, they preferred to remain in their own homes as long as they will be receiving services like friendly visitors, personal care, home maintenance, meal services, telephone reassurance, and transportations. These interviews with the adults and senior citizens have helped me to develop great interest for caregiving job. As a faith based person, care, love, and respect for everyone goes with me. My responsibility is to give the best service to whoever will be assigned to me.
