What make me a good caregiver because I've done this before and really enjoy helping the elderly with their day to day lives & activities. What attracted to be a caregiver because I was a RA(Resident Assist) at Assistant Living Facility and it is pretty much similar and I went on to training (school) or what not to become a CNA, and again because I have compassion for the elderly because one day I hope to be their age and someone will help me and my parents are getting up there in age now. What do I enjoy about being a caregiver? Talking with them learning from them and listening and helping and enjoying their company. What personal achievement am I proud of? That I actually became a Certified Nursing Assistant, because as a teenager or young adult, I was never thinking of coming in the health field to do this, I wanted to be in healthcare but more in office setting was my goal.
