proud Caregiver

I would say that I'm a proud Caregiver. I've been to the UK and work as a carer..its a tough job, but very fulfilling in the end of day that you are able to help some one that is needing attention and care. Some says its a dirty job because of the fact that you really need to wipe and clean patients poop but its part of the job, thats why they pay you to do that job if no patient no carer no carer no patient means no money... But guys you think being a carer or a caregiver is a tough and dirty job?

its a nice job..and very fulfilling...but sometimes can be very tiring as well...but if your motivation is to help and care people...being tired is not a big deal...sometimes can be very funny as well..just find out why...

I have been a CNA for 13 years and enjoy it so much. When i started working in the nursing home at the age 16 i thought it was gross to have to was old ladies and men up but i started thinking of it as they are just like babies some of them but they are just bigger in size. Yes it is very rewarding career i have learned so much from the people i have taken care of.

It is a tough job and people that dont do it do not understan what a tough job it is. It is a very rewarding career but a messy one at that. I loved it when I did it. Over the years it has taken a toll on my back so I cant do it anymore. I use to love the stories the old people would tell. You get to meet so many cool people. good luck

There is no more important work than caregiving.It can be exhausting and emotionally draining but making a difference in someone else life, that's what being caregiver is all about. It also can be extremely rewarding , fulfilling and filled with love and hope. I want you to know that you are appreciated. Because of you adults with physical and mental illnesses can continue to live at home. God Bless!
