Besides experience and knowledge I acquired from nursing school, helping others has always been my passion. I find joy and fulfillment knowing I make a difference in someone else's life. I am patient and willing to adjust to the needs of my clients. I try to put myself in their shoes, to try and understand them. I treat my patients with love and respect, and with dignity, just like how I would want to be treated if I was in their same situation. Since I was a young age, I have always been interested in helping other people. I enjoy helping others who have trouble helping themselves especially the elderly. I completed my vocational nursing studies in 2012 and it was at that point I realised that helping people is my calling. I love that being a caregiver, you can make a difference. It's a rewarding experience providing care and assistance to those who are no longer able to do so and to know that I have done my job right when I see smiles on their faces. The moments that make me most proud of as a care giver is when I see my patients doing well, seeing their happy faces.

I wanted to be caregiver because it's in my nature to care for others. Since i was young i enjoyed taking care of my grandparents, my nieces and nephews. With the elders, I enjoy helping them, listening to their stories and learning from their experiences. I love to laugh with them, taking care of their needs. The word "thank you" from them means a lot to me. It's not just about recognition but a fulfillment that i did something good to them. Being apart from my own parents sometimes makes me feel sad and so when I'm with my patients I make sure that I take good care of them because it's like caring for my own parents too. It makes me feel good when i make them feel comfortable and well taken care of coz that's really important. Sometimes our elders may not need the most intelligent person but rather they need to be surrounded by the people who can truly care for them and can patiently understand their needs especially when they are not feeling good.
