I became a caregiver because my friends mother was on drugs really bad and she had 3 strokes. Her kids didn't help much, they didn't understand the extent of their mother's condition so I parterned with the family for private pay and assisted with the mother's daily needs. What I like most about being a caregiver is the joy from helping others, I know they really need it and it makes me very happy to do as much as I can . Some of my personal achievements is just to create a loving vibe between the clients, I'm glad when I can make them feel comfortable with me and their families as well. A little about myself I'm 23 years old , I'm a single person just looking to make it in this world. I want to be an RN so all the experience I can get in this field is highly appreciated.
