My personality is contagious, i have such a positive attitude that the elderly love me, it usually brightness up some of their attitudes that day. I always have a big bright smile and I'm a very talkative person and most of the time patients enjoy the company because usually they don't have any. What attracted me to becoming a caregiver the most is when i was younger around the age of 16 and my grandparents were both getting very ill. I saw how much it meant for them to see me everyday and me help them out around the house. I see how taking care of someone regardless of if you know them or not means the world to some people and that makes me happy knowing they're happy. A personal moment that i was proud of was when i was volunteering at a nursing home and all of the residents would be excited to see me so we could all play uno or bingo, or their favorite thing was walking to wendy's so we could get frostys and chilli's for everyone.
