Some of the important personality traits that I possess include patience, compassion, attentiveness, dependability, and trustworthiness. Patience is important because it allows you to understand that there may be changes in plans, things may not go as quickly as planned, or there may be a little hesitation at times on the part of the person receiving the care. Compassion is important because it is important to maintain an understanding of what the person is going through. Attentiveness is vital, because it allows you to understand emotional or physical changes in the person you're caring for. It is also crucial that the caregiver be someone who is trustworthy and will not breach that trust by taking advantage of the person they're caring for. Lastly, due to the fact that those who need home care don't usually just need it sporadically, it is imperative that a caregiver be dependable and show up to provide the care that the person needs and is counting on. My everlasting altruism is what led me to becoming a caregiver. I love to help people in any way I can, as it is very rewarding for me. My social degree in electronics, as well as my impending certification for a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) are the personal achievements that I am most proud of.
