I believe that all of these traits make me a better team player and a great caregiver.
What attracted me to be a great caregiver is in my life many tragic events have occurred. I believe it's what made me who I am today. The first event hit close to home, my grandpa was in the intensive care and I was there with him we'll he was passing away. before he pasted away he told me I would make an excellent caregiver. Another event happened, were a costumer had multiple seizers and I was able to have asses the situation calmly and productively. he received great medial care as I waited for the ambulance to arrive. I helped to the best of my ability. later on he came back one week later, to the store fully recovered and thanked me for helping; to save his life. I knew then that being in the medical was my calling.
What I enjoy the most about being a caregiver is taking care of people and being to help them in there time and need.
A personal achievement that I am so proud of is graduating Sanger high school with my certify Nursing Assist License, with my CPR license as well. Devoting most of my time to the care of someone else is one of the most selfless things someone can do, but it's not only about the time involved. Being able to understand the person you're caring for, knowing their problems, challenges and desires will not only make it easier to care for them, but will undoubtedly improve the relationship you have with each other. Empathy is a big aspect of that, and being able to put yourself in someone else's shoes and be empathetic will only increase the quality of care you're providing.As instrumental as caregivers are, communication is key. It can be something as simple as going through the day's schedule, or complicated as discussing health concerns, but no matter what it is, it must be done well. Subpar communication will do nothing beneficial for the relationship, and in fact, could damage it. Furthermore, as it's likely there's more than one caregiver in the individual's life, and because of all the moving parts, communication is key to get information to all the relevant parties. Whether it's relaying health information or just remaining congenial, communication between caregivers is important, second only to communicating with the individual.
