I feel I am a great caregiver because my patients that I have in the hospital like me and at times have requested that I take care of them. I become personable with them to make them feel like a better person not a sick person in the hospital. I became a caregiver because I enjoy helping others. I really enjoy home caregiving because it not only gives me the opportunity to know the patient but to help them around the house. I am a good fixer-upper around the home which a lot of patients like. I assist people in meeting nourishment and elimination needs, mobility, personal hygiene and grooming, comfort and anxiety relief. Assist in promoting patient safety and environmental cleanliness, and with unit management and efficiency.
