I believe I am a great caregiver because my three best qualities are that I am patient, enthusiastic and adapt quickly. I became a caregiver because I believe it takes a special kind of person to care for someone the way they would care for themselves. I enjoy being a caregiver because I am able to help make people's lives a little easier and provide them with care that I would want to have. I am a college student and apart from classes have a very flexible schedule. I have worked with a variety of people. I have worked with both children and adults, people with Autism, dementia, quadriplegics, cancer patients, diabetes patients, etc.
