Hi! My name is Halie, I'm 21 years old. I became a caregiver to take care of my grandfather that was not able to be by him self anymore. I cared for him for many years until he passed away. I love the thought of helping people with things they may not be able to do anymore without a little help. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is seeing the big smile on someone's face when I help them accomplish something they thought they couldn't do. It's the greatest feeling in the world. My best personal acheivment that makes me proud is, I worked with an autistic boy at one point and he was terrified of stairs because he had fallen and gotten seriously hurt. I worked with him everyday to get him to the steps, some days went great other days he was not having it. I worked with him for months until finally he trusted me enough to get down those stairs. After that he went down the steps everyday. I was so proud of not only myself but also of him. He did an amazing job!
I think what makes me a great caregiver is that I'm careful, I have great patience, and I'm compassionate. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is knowing that I get to help them get through the day because sometimes we're the only friends when the family is busy with their own job. One personal achievement I'm proud of is the fact that woman I help now has never fallen when in my care.
