I love interacting with people especially the elderly since not so many people like to talk or hear them out. Being patient making them feel like they are still important show them that someone really cares for their wellbeing. Becoming a caregiver was never on my plans until recently a old friend offer me a job to take of her father who is 94. After interacting and spending time I realized it was a really fun job. What I enjoy of being a caregiver is the stories the elderly carry so many interesting stories which to many are boring, but find it interesting. Also because of how much I learn when it comes to taking care of someone. The achievement I'm most proud of is when the patient says thank you for caring. To me thise words are the best achievement I have ever received.
