I am a great caregiver first because I have a lot of patience. I empathize with patients and try to anticipate their needs and provide them. I also make them feel they are not a burden to me. Being widely read and widely traveled I am able to share in their conversations. I am aware that every day is different for them and meet them at the point of their need or wish each day. For example is they wish to be garrulous on one day I will talk with them. If they need to be quiet, I will give them their space while making sure that their daily needs are met. I enjoy helping people and when I put a smile on someones face and make them happy, that's my greatest achievement.
