My story started when my grandparents got sick. My grandparents raised me. When they got sick I took care of both of them for 2 years each. I love being around elderly people and enjoy their company. I believe in my career that is important to build a relationship with clients and their families . My clients become like my family. What makes my current clients family happy is that they know when I'm with their family they are good hands. The advice I was given by a current clients family was that I am very observant . What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is being able to wake up in the morning and going to see my clients and talk with them also having a great feeling I helped them achieve their goals. I have strong feelings as long as my client can still do some things independently it is important to stand by them , let them still have their independence . I have a lot of patience and compassion with my clients and that's why my current clients families like me.
