What makes me a good caregiver is I actually care about these people, some caregivers just want an easy paycheck and do nothing. I know how much they need someone and really want to be able to do these things themselves but just cant. I've been doing this off and on for two years now and love it. I like making a difference in people's lives and helping them do what they want to get done. I think just making some of these people's day just by talking to them and helping them out is what attracts me to this job. The conversations that I have and being able to help is what I enjoy the most. A personal achievement im most proud of is going back to school after being out of school for so long and maintaining good grades and still being a mom and involved as much as I can be in school activities and taking care of the house and my husband and still getting a my research papers done on time and school work done. I'm pretty proud of that.
