Most of my clients from Caleb Inc. wanted more independence from their parents. Each person had a disability of some kind and goals that they were working towards. The look of satisfaction and pride on the clients face when they mastered a new skill provided me such nourishment, emotionally mentally and spiritually. I was so proud of them, because even though something was very difficult for them, they put everything they had into the task at hand. With every achievement they made their quality of life improved. They were able to rely on themselves more and their parents less. Friendship was important to my clients as well, someone dependable and caring. While being a caregiver I noticed that through helping my clients, I became a face they look forward to seeing. Working and helping people I saw as friends is one of the many things that I enjoy about being a caregiver. There are a few things about myself that help make me take good care giver. I'm a mother of a three-year-old boy. I'm the oldest of six children. I also have a bachelors in psychology.
