I feel that the best traits of me that make me a good caregiver is the biggest one being I am a caring person, I am hardworking and I treat my residents/elderly with respect and as if they were my own family. I love to help people and make a difference in someone's day/life. I've got 5 years of nursing home experience under my belt. The most important thing I enjoy the most about being a caregiver is seeing someones progress improve, knowing I'm the one who has helped make that happen. Personal achievement I have made is being a mother and knowing my children are well taken care of and happy.
