Hello! My name is Aneesah. I live in Converse, TX. I've been a caregiver for 15 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because, I have a love for taking care of young children and people with disabilities, and then I started taking care of adults with disabilities, and it's all because I have a love for helping ones in need.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new carer would be, to make sure you understand their wants and their needs, how to stay calm in certain situations. Never get upset or angry with any situation. Just deal with what happens in life day by day, and stay calm, and be loving and caring.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget, she was loving and caring. She always had a smile on her face. She had certain challenges, but they weren't very hard to deal with. She needed help with certain little things day by day. But most of all, I just loved her smile, and her reactions to things, and how overjoyed she would be just to see my face.
