I believe what makes me a great caregiver is that I can manage pretty much anything. I'm reliable, responsible and can be trusted to use discretion to make the right decisions, when family isn't available. I try to encourage clients to perform mind-stimulating activities such as reading, playing board games, and posting reminders for important tasks in visible areas. I have created scrapbooks with pictures of the client's family to help the client recognize their family members. I am proud to say that I have emotionally supported my clients, hold their hand and find the right words in moments of dif ficulty. At the same time, I am able to control my own emotions to ensure they do not increase the anxiety of my clients or their loved ones. What I enjoy most about caregiving is meeting new people and getting to know a little about them. Each one is special in their own way and each one is always a learning experience for me, in my personal life skills. ... more
