what makes me a great caregiver is that fact that i have patience and empathy for my residents. I take the time to listen and learn their ways so they feel comfortable and less of a burden, let them know they are cared for and important. I became a caregiver to help the elderly a chance to reside in their own home and feel safe because majority of elderly fear nursing homes. what i love about being a caregiver is getting to know different people and seeing all different kinds of environments. I love listening to stories and giving companionship to people who may not have many visitors. my personal achievement is that i gain new family and the fact that the families trust me. It lets me know that i did my job to the best of my abilities. And that they will go out there way to recommend me to other families in need.
