I became a caregiver when my grandmother was put in a nursing facility and seen how she had to endure a callus of care by the nursing staff, it made me want to learn how to take care of her properly. I also wanted to make a change in nursing facilities by showing people how far caring for a resident helps them transit into that lifestyle with dignity. What I like about about being a caregiver is interacting with people and getting the wisdom and advice that the elderly bring. I also get a satisfaction knowing that the person is cared for properly and comfortable with cards that have been dealt to them. I love taking care and nurturing people. A personal achievement that I am proud of is continuing my education further than my high school diploma. I will achieve my goals in getting my bachelors degree and also continue my education until I am satisfied that my goals are met.
