What makes me a great caregiver is I'm very compassionate,loving,sensitive and caring toward the elderly. I treat them as I would want my grandparents or parents to be treated. I started caring for a family member at a young age caring for my grandfather trying to help him with whatever he needed. Since then it stuck with me and I knew I wanted to be a nurse. I enjoyed the feeling of appreciation from the People I cared for and just being able to help them when they couldn't help themselves!!! Knowing they can feel comfortable with me and thank me for what I do, and give them the love and compassion as if they were my family!!
