I'm a caregiver because I'm natural and at ease to help people, especially those in their senior years who are incapable of living independently .Some cannot actively function either because of health issues , and some may be just needed company to be able to cope with issues of growing in age. For the past 9years I have been a caregiver,Within those years I have venture out to get necessary traininning too to further serve my clients in a more comfortable, safest and , updated right procedures of carrying out my tasks, I find working in the environment of homes likeable and comfortable. To be able to work and do the very activities I like in my home example cooking,cleaning, gardening, arranging things neatly, and conversation with my clients is so interesting and leads me more to get to know them well. As they they share openly their upbringing, their likes and dislikes, their favourite past times, their favourite food, what ticks and things that irritates them.Out of this open and relaxed conversactions I will venture to serve with ease .With all my years of serving as a caregiver I feel that I have fulfilled an achievement by serving according to how they want to be treated, with respect and dignity,The bond that I always leave behind is always incredible that I normally receive letters of affirmation and appreciation of my service. I become close and be treated like family with family members and friends. What a satisfying feeling that I know I can do this kind of work with Love, Care, and a passion that only God knows how much I love what I do.
