Hi, my name is Anitria. I have over 16 years of experience in caregiving.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my grandmother. I'd help out a lot when she was sick and before she died. And before she died, she wanted me to promise her that this was-- would be my calling. She said it was my calling, and it just was going to have to be.
What advice would you give to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be patient, listen, and be understanding. All three of those things, it comes all together.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget was a painter. And I was just-- every time I went to her house, she had all these wonderful stories to tell me And then she had-- because she was a painter, her house was filled with all of her paintings, and I just thought it was a beautiful thing
