I like the appreciation by consumers who are able to express themselves when you do the little things for them, like making sure their meals are prepared on time and taking their prescribed medication. There are many other responsibilities and tasks I have performed as a caregiver, such as housekeeping activities, like cleaning, dusting, and laundry.

I was able to provide care for mental health and mental retarded persons at all age level, provided them with a safe, secure, happy and comfortable environment and created a fun environment for consumer participation. I developed processes and programs for providing care; like doing reports and
