How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I like to help people. I have always been an active member of the community, helping people when I was younger, elderly, disabled. I just enjoyed their company and helping others.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to get to know your resident, be open and caring towards their needs and their personality traits, so that you could have a better relationship with your resident.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I had a person I did care giving for, they had pretty much a very dynamic personality. They had the incentive to never give up and they still did the best they could to take care of their personal ideals. They were involved in the community and still active. It was a pleasure just hearing all their stories, and seeing them live life and be so proud.
