I enjoy and love the passion of being a caregiver because I enjoy and love working with different clients or individuals with different disabilities and/or different health concerns to learn and educate myself about their disabilities/health issues. Being a caregiver attracts me to interact with them one on one and working with them to make a potential difference in their lives. I enjoy being a caregiver as well to increase my self confidence and self worth knowing that someone relies on me taking care of them. My personal achievement as a caregiver that I am truly proud of was helping a client that was unable to walk on her own due stroke. Difficult tasks such as bathing, grooming, personal hygiene tasks and simple tasks such as holding a spoon. Helping the client to overcome the fear of failing or giving up, I was able to help and work with her daily to improve and accomplish the goal of her getting back on track. I am proud to say, the client has come a very long way and therefore was able to walk on her own using a walker, minimal use of wheelchair as well and perform all tasks without any issues and with someone by her side monitor her for any health concerns that may arise.
