I became a care giver because of the joy I get after seeing the positive impact of my care on a client. For instance, seeing one of my intellectual disable client lead a happy , safe and fulfilling life because of my input in his life is enough to make it all worth my while. Caregiven to me is the most rewarding thing a person can do. I like the fact that making little changes in my action, attitude and life in general can make major beneficial changes to someone with physical or health compromises. It makes me feel like a heroin, an important person to the world.
