I think just meeting peoples' needs. Sometimes it's not a glamorous job but you leave and the people feel like they have been treated with dignity. Their needs are met, they're comfortable or as comfortable as you can help them become. It's a very important thing for me. Not that it has to be glamorous, but just their smiles. It's just a very rewarding thing. I just truly love being a caregiver . I just love each of my clients. Some of them might have little personality challenges but I tend to get along with all of my clients. I've learned so much, even the people who are - who have very different beliefs than I do. They've lived such an interesting life and their life has shaped their views. I love having the opportunity to learn from them and what they have gone through. Many people have had really tough lives. I just enjoy making their life as pleasant as I can make it today.
