My favorite part of being a caregiver is developing close relationships with the people I'm assisting. Every person has their own unique personality and needs- I love getting to know each individual and being their to support them in any way I can. I have been told I'm hardworking, kind, calm, patient, and dependable. I have experience assisting people with a wide range of needs and medical conditions.

I love what I do as a caregiver, I love helping out or making vulnerable people feel cared for, loved and comfortable by all means because they deserve quality life. I love adding value to people's lives. Being a caregiver I am able to interact directly with my clients and this way I get to know them better and in this way I am able to deliver quality care. I once helped my grandpa at his old age even without any skills of caregiving by then. I ensured he had a quality life by attending to his needs and being his companion and this made him happy
