I feel that what makes me a great caregiver is my passion for being able to assist those who are not able to do so for themselves. I enjoy that I am able to help people maintain some part of their quality of life as long as I can do so. I became a caregiver because I have always enjoyed helping people with the things that they need done. I hated seeing how people were treated in some nursing homes. I love the one on one contact that you get to experience with being a caregiver. I love being a caregiver because it provides me with the ability to be able to sit and talk with my clients. Learning about their lives, the places they have been, listening to them talk about their families, and the different ways things were when they were growing up. I think that my greatest personal achievement that I am proud of is the fact that I was able to graduate High School. It was a huge struggle for me to finish it due to me dropping out a few times but I was able to cross that milestone in my life. I am now pursing college and I am almost finished with that so this will be another great achievement in my life.
