Hello, there. My name is Lisa. I became a caregiver because I have always had a true passion and love for helping others. I wanted to do something to make a difference in the world and care for those in need. I enjoy being a caregiver because of the wonderful close and caring relationships that are made with the clients and their families. I love seeing their faces light up when I walk in the door and they smile and are so happy to see me because they know I am dedicated to them and will help make their day a happy one. While taking care of a young girl with profound mental retardation, I was able to get through to her with gentleness, respect and kindness, and her family informed me that she, for the first time when being cared for, responded to me and accepted instruction so that I could assist her with her personal hygiene. She smiled at me and let me know that she understood. This was a huge accomplishment for her and I feel that my patience and kindess was a direct result of that. I am a very caring and compassionate individual who is dedicated to caring for others and assisting them with their every need. Being a caregiver means the world to me. I cannot imagine myself ever doing anything else. Changing people's lives for the better is what it is all about. I find so much happiness in helping those who cannot help themselves, and it is an honor to do so.
