I became a caregiver because of my grandmother. I saw how she would light up when her caregiver would come visit, and help her during the day. I have always liked to help people and I feel that it's always a joy to bring happiness and help someone who is feeling down about their health problems or just in life in general. My personal achievement I would say that made me proud was the very first case I had been given, because I was told that my client didn't like any of his aides and he had many previous before me, and I was kinda the last aide the agency was going to send before they cut ties, but I went in open minded and me and the gentleman got along great and I just listened to what he wanted and how he wanted things, and I stayed with him for over a year and half, up until the day he passed away. I felt like a lost a friend more than a partner at work. I was thankful for his wisdom, and what things he talked with me about and just how much I grew as a worker.
