Being a caregiver is one of most rewarding things a person can do. The smile on their faces is over whelming and makes me feel I have done my job right. Seeing a smile of appreciation over just a small deed that I do. I like meeting new people and providing caregiving services that they can no longer do for themselves .I enjoy the opportunity to impact clients lives and make a difference to them. I appreciate the change to get to know clients and their families and become an intergral part of theirs lives. I always give 100% and do the best job I can with no exceptions or excuses.
