I am a perfect fit for helping individuals. I can relate at times to how they are feeling when going through or have gone through a traumatic life change. Whether it be a short term or long term prognosis. I feel this is the most important quality in caregiving. Who wouldn't want someone to understand them for them and not look at them as if they are a patient but rather a true person. What attracts me to doing this type of work is how someone can be so thankful for what we do for them even if it is to just pick up a piece of paper off the floor. The most smallest things matter the most and to see them smile as if I made their whole day better makes my day 20 times better. I look forward to going into work and doing all that I can for all the people I have taken care of for almost the last four years. My biggest achievement in this particular job is having my loved ones thank me for the job I do for them, but I remind them it's more my pleasure than theirs.
