Hi, I am Bettie. I live in Joshua, TX and I have been a caregiver for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my mom. 10 years ago, she wound up on life support and after she got out of the hospital I took care of her.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to actually listen to the client and to understand where they're coming from and try to help them as needed.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is the one that I had to take care of on a ventilator and take her off the vent during the daytime and put her on the vent at nighttime.
