What makes me a great caregiver is that I go far beyond to provide my clients with the best quality of care. As a caregiver, my resident needs come first, and I make sure their health care needs are met. I first became interested in elderly care at the age of 11, I was a volunteer at a residential care facility where my Aunt worked. Later, at the age of 15, I became a dietary aide at another local residential care facility. Then, at the age of 18, I received my certificate as a State Tested Nurses Aide (STNA) and been working in the field for over 10+ years. I guess you can say I always had a passion for working with senior citizens and the elderly. I guess being raised by my great-grandmother taught me how to have compassion and patience for older people. What I enjoy most when it comes to being a caregiver is seeing my clients happy and relieved knowing their loved ones are being provided the best quality of care possible and seeing their healthcare needs taken care of. My greatest personal achievement is my children and obtaining my bachelor's degree in health care.
