Hi my name is Jennifer. I became a caregiver shortly after a tragic accident of mine happened, I was in an explosion and was lucky i made it out alive. Seen my experience from the caregivers at the hospital was so pleasant. They were always assisting me with my needs, even though at that time i felt hopeless and useless. The caregivers always knew what to say to perk me up. That being said me being in your loved ones shoes before, I know the exact feelings there having on a regular basis for i have been through the same in my past. I like being a caregiver because like those caregivers that helped me in my situation, I like to reach out my mind, body, and soul to my clients, with humorous jokes, my go get her personality, and making them feel useful and wanted. I also think its important to have mind and body stimulating activities. I always enjoy the warm-fuzzy feeling i get when my clients are happy and enjoying life. That feeling makes me proud of my job and makes my mind set even further that the healthcare profession is where i want to go career wise. ... more
