I feel like I am a great caregiver cause I try to make the client feel as independent as possible , and by this I mean by helping out with all of their needs but helping out in the way they like it and as a friend not as a worker. I try to build a relationship of trust and friendship before anything. What pointed me to be a caregiver is my mom did this for years and I loved hearing all the lovely stories about how she made a persons day just by helping them out in a open hearted way. I enjoy building a relationship with my clients and laughing and joking around with them, basically making them feel alive and up to speed on today's world. My personal achievement I am proud of is having multiple clients wanting me in their home and building relationships with their family and friends as well as them, it really warms my heart.
