What makes me a great caregiver I will say that I really care about people I tried to listen to what their needs and wants are and try to provide them with the best of my ability. I'm a caring loving person I believe in treating people the way you want to be treated, I became a caregiver when I was 13 years old taking care of my grandmother and her friends that was Eastern star members. I would go to their homes and prepare their food and take out the garbage and clean their homes in the summertime I found a lot of joy in helping them. The most thing that I enjoy about being caregiver is being there for someone that really needs me, listening to their stories, providing the care that they need. It gave me great joy to know that I am need it and want it. My personal achievement is to start my own group homes for the homeless, for the children, and for the seniors, and for the mentally ill. I want to see if community their work together stays together I think everyone needs each other to make this world a better place to live .

I became a caregiver because my grandmother needed me to help her stay independent and at home. I love being a caregiver and I am always meeting new and interesting people who all have different walks of life . I am most proud of my ability to relate to everyone. I have invested 20 + years and countless hours into my career training and it is really rewarding. I am a CNA and I am excited about the opportunity to care for people who need my help. I am CPR certified and I have been trained to work with a variety of different people. I am reliable and consistent. I have a kind and compassionate attitude. I really enjoy doing my life's work.
