What makes me a great caregiver is the passion I e towards helping others. I became a caregiver because my nana passed away leaving my special needs cousin for me. Her name is Patricia and she had a long list of diagnoses. At first I thought that I would be overwhelmed but I wasn't. Prior to living with my cousin, I kinda grasped how she wanted her food to be cooked, when she wanted to go shopping and where, and how she liked her room to smell! She is a smart cookie and I admirered her sweet and kind heart. What I like about being a caregiver is the fact that I get to help others when they really need it. A personal achievement of mine is gaining more patience. She taught me that being patient means less mistakes and I have carried that with me forever.
