I have been a caregiver since 1999. What interest me in becoming a caregiver is when I went to visit someone In a nursing home and saw seniors slouched down in their wheelchairs ( some had soiled clothing on) lined up in front of the nurse station. I put myself in their places for a moment and realize that is what I wanna do. I have worked with all types of client ,even was a live in for 18 months. I'm a very passionate , caring, loving, easygoing, trustworthy, dependable person.The most thing I enjoy about being a care giver is putting a smile on a client face, speaking words of encouragement to them, assuring them that they are loved no matter what condition their in. My most proud achievement of being a caregiver is when I was able to honor one of my personal client last wish on her dying bed. I made sure that her remains was place at her sons feet in his grave.
