I became a caregiver because I needed a job then I can't stop being one because I loved it, I love helping others and making their life easier. Being a caregiver is one of my passion, I love making difference in peoples lives, I go home happy because I did something for the person in need which made them, smile, comfortable, satisfied and at the end of the day send me home blessed. I'm dependable, compassionate, honest and caring person. What makes me think and believe that I'm a great caregiver is that everyone of my patient called me "my angle" and this is because I treat everyone of them as they were my own, I don't leave anything that can be done today for tomorrow because we may not have tomorrow and I don't want to live with guilty consciousness for the rest of my life, therefore I provide all the assistance the patient needs right then when he/she needs it, not tomorrow. One of the best qualities that I have as a caregiver is a sense of empathy. Whether I'm caring for a small child in a daycare or helping an elderly person recover from surgery, a sense of personal understanding and connection is vital. I understand the elderly may feel vulnerable, scared, confused and uncomfortable, and being able to identify and allay those fears can create a sense of calm and trust for those that I care for. Patience is also vital to the role of caregiver, I'm able to separate myself from potential anger and resentment and not take the situation personally, all while still providing high-quality care services. I can keep calm and soothe them in their time of distress or anxiety and being a a voice of encouragement. I'm reliable because I know that they depend on us and often feel a sense of personal attachment. I'm continually on time, particularly if administering food or medical care.
The job of a caregiver is challenging yet rewarding. I do this because I am following a dream of helping others. Providing care to people, who cannot look after themselves, while maintaining their dignity, is an accomplishment in itself. I thrive helping people who cannot help themselves.
The reason I become a caregiver because I enjoy taking care of the elderly, sick, and handicapped. I enjoy making sure client are safe, healthy, and comfortable and will treat my clients and family members with respect.
