I am a very patient person. That's the first thing you must to have to be a caregiver. I have been a caregiver for over 35 years. I have live in with patients. Right now I am taking care of my mother who has Alzheimer's Disease and unable to walk. I have help now so now I'm seeking employment. I am a very hard worker who knows what to do and will get the job done correctly and right. I've never had a patient or the family to complaint about me in the years I have been in the field. I enjoy what I can do for a patient. I am there to please them. I got into this field because of my mother. She taught me all the ropes over 35 years ago. And I am still here doing it. I enjoy helping my patients. The personal achievement I'm proud of is that I'm able to be there for the patient and the family. Because I know everyone has a life and sometimes you can't always be there with your family member.
