I know for a fact that being a caregiver is a difficult job. But what skills do you really need to be an effective caregiving professional?

There are many qualities one must possess to be a good caregiver. First and foremost, you should be compassionate and must practice the simple basics of treating one with the same respect,
esteem and care. A dedicated caregiver must also show kindness when speaking with your care recipient.

Caregivers need certain knowledge and skills both to provide the best possible care and to protect their own well-being. Aside from that, you should be passionate about it. You must be interested in senior care too.
