To be able to work and do the very activities I like in my home example cooking,cleaning, gardening, arranging things neatly, and conversation with my clients is so interesting and leads me more to get to know them well. As they they share openly their upbringing, their likes and dislikes, their favourite past times, their favourite food, what ticks and things that irritates them.Out of this open and relaxed conversactions I will venture to serve with ease .With all my years of serving as a caregiver I feel that I have fulfilled an achievement by serving according to how they want to be treated, with respect and dignity,The bond that I always leave behind is always incredible that I normally receive letters of affirmation and appreciation of my service.
