    I am a great caregiver because I take the time to listen to the concerns, wants and needs of the clients and their families. I became a caregiver because I know a lot of people do not have what it takes to be compassionate toward others that are not their family or friends. I have been a caregiver for 8 years and I grow to love my clients and their families as if they were my own family.

    I am a very out going person. I get along with others very well. What made me become a caregiver was that I helped take care of my grandmother. I love being able to take care of or help my clients be able to stay home where they are comfortable and not have to change their daily routines. I love the fact that I can be their companion and that I get to listen to the stories and see the photos of their life. I always learn something new with every client. .
