Additional Experiences/Qualifications/Preferences:
Caring for an elderly person is an art as well as a science. Often, the caregiver is responsible for expanding the environment for someone with physical limitations or cognitive impairments. Caregiving requires patience, a sense of humor, a willingness to be flexible and the ability to promote the highest level of independence possible. You may be employed by an individual or a family, but you are there to work with someone and create a collaborative working relationship. This is what makes the difference in the quality of an individual's life.
