What makes me a great caregiver? I am punctual, very reliable, consistent, honest, and kind. I believe that our seniors are the backbone of our society and truly care for their well being. Why I became a caregiver? I've always enjoyed helping my grandmother, I learned so much from her and enjoyed listening to stories of her childhood and obstacles her generation had to endure. After nine years of being a stay home mom, I discovered a need for senior care. Knowing the benefits my grandmother and I both got from helping her, I felt almost a calling to do what I can for others. What do I like about being a caregiver? For over eleven years I have found senior care is rewarding on an emotional level. Also, I like it when I can assist someone with their daily tasks/struggles, tend to their needs, and the things I can do to help them feel better about themselves. A smile is a great reward! ... more
