I became a caregiver at first because it was rewarding for me to help others in need already. After working in this field for about 4 years I've discovered that sometimes ill go into a home to someone who's either sad or depressed or plain miserable, that sometimes a simple hug with some respect and understanding can change a persons outlook on life again. A personal achievement im very proud of is being asked to become a Med aide, which i did after a few days of med classes! Honestly I love being around people i just get along with them...some say i have the gift of gab so its all goes in hand. which worls for me since id like to pursue a career in the nursing field.
