Hi, my name is Blondelle. I live in Manhattan, NY. My years of experience of caregiving is five years.
How did you get into caregiving?
My mother inspired me to become a caregiver. Helping people is one of my great desires.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice I would give to a caregiver is be patient, be kind and be gentle. Most of all, show your interest of taking care of that patient. I know it may be difficult to take care of a resident patient or client while they are sick. Example being in the dementia state, but if you show your attitude to the client in a positive manner, you may do a good job in taking care of that client.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Diane and how she showed me love all the time I was taking care of her from 2012 to 2016. She was my client and she taught me along the way. She taught me new things and I learned how to do many things with her.
