What makes me want to be a caregiver is I love helping elders, & learning new things each & every day & hearing their past experiences! I've also had some caregiving experience from helping my grandmother with her everyday tasks/needs. & I love doing so! I feel I am not only making money, but I'm also helping others! What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is the way it makes you feel at the end of the day, knowing that you helped another who're physically unable to help themselves due to just getting older & experiencing more difficulties which is not really anyone's fault, everyone ages. Being responsible to helping others is very satisfying! A lot of my closest people to me are my elders!
