I became a caregiver because I love working and taking care for the elderly. Since my 8 years experience in the nursing field, my clients and their family love my care. I see my patience as my own family member. I treat my patience as myself because the way I want to be treated that is the same way I treat my client. Being a caregiver for 8 years has helped me in so many ways, I have worked in Hospitals, Nursing home Facilities, Private Duty, etc. I love what I do in helping each client I've ever worked with. Taking care of sick people that needs my help gives me joy in my heart and it let me know they need people to work with them that care. My personal achievement that am proud of was able to get my four years degree. I am honest, caring, patient, and love cooking. ... more
