I became a professional caregiver because it really makes a difference in people's lives. People need help sometimes, and that's a fact. My parents were educators and givers and took me along when they cared for others. Alongside my mother, I then cared for my father as an early teen during his battle with brain cancer and we all learned so much. At the end of the day, I feel like my time is well spent caring for others and many times I learn a lot from my patients that impact my life in such positive ways. It's definitely a win-win. :)
I am a great caregiver because this is my purpose, and I love and enjoy helping families. The first time I knew I wanted to be a caregiver was in 2003, two years before I became a CNA. My grandma had Alzheimer's disease. No one in the family seem to have Patience to watch her and take care of her. So I did, everyday all day until she passed away in 05. I few months later I was in school to get my CNA. I enjoy everything about being a CNA. Just the smiles I put on my clients faces and the peace of mind that I give to the families knowing that there loved ones are in great hands and are being treated as if they are my own mom and dad really lifts my spirit. This is my purpose, and I love everything about being a caregiver.
I love caring for the elderly's it's like I'm taking care of my grandmother or grandfather. Everyday is different but I enjoy it. It all started when I was in high school and my Mother started her own care home business. She had residents with dementia and alzheimer's and I would help her take care of them. I learned a lot also when I attended the CNA program. One day I planning to have my own care home business just like my mother.
Being a caregiver is more than a job in my opinion. It's something you have to be passionate about and able to adapt to change. I enjoy everything there is to being a caregiver, from the smiles to the stories you hear along the way to even the wonderful families you meet and connect with is what I enjoy the most. My personal achievement is my referral system..I haven't been doing this long but i've met great families and was able to give them laughs as well as peace of mind.
