I decided I wanted to become a caregiver after completing clinical rotations in a nursing home. The impersonal care and disrespect the patients received was very disturbing and heart breaking. I realized that I want to be able to provide one on one care and attention to individuals while allowing them to continue living on their own and be as independent as possible. I love being a caregiver because I am able to focus on my patient 100%, without distraction, and know that while I am there they are receiving the best care I am able to provide. So many people dread going to work, but in this profession I look forward to going to work and seeing progress with my patient. There is tremendous satisfaction in knowing that what I do, as a caregiver, makes a difference in someone's life everyday.
