I love to care for and help others who at not be able to completely care for themselves anymore. I have a heart for companionship. I grew to appreciate the way it felt to help someone while still maintaining their dignity because that's the most important thing. While working in the Alzheimer's and dementia unit I had to be sure to lead and not take over as they were trying to achieve something on their own. I never forced, only encouraged. My greatest moment working there is when this woman who was a resident,she was a war veteran and at this moment her mind had went back to the war and she was very up set and scared, I was successfully able to calm her down.
