I want to be a caregiver because I know that it is much needed help for families who are doing the best they can to make sure their loved ones are being taken care of. A second set of eyes, ears, and hands for the often very busy and time consumed family member who is willing to provide care can mean a great deal to the loved one and to the family member. We as caregivers provide an eased state of mind for all involved and that in itself gives me great satisfaction. And to know that I helped keep someone's loved one as comfortable and happy as possible in the given situation.
An employer should hire me because I have 1 1/2 years of home health and nursing home experience. I have taken the CNA course but have yet to obtain certification, which I plan on working towards the next few months. But I do have the skills necessary to perform the functions of the position I am applying for. I have the drive, determination, dependability, honesty, compassion, and empathy to help a family in need. I care for the clients as if they were my own family member. I truly enjoy this profession..its not just a JOB to me.
