Hi, my name is Brandi. I live in Clermont, FL and I've been a nursing assistant for over eight years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I took care of my grandfather when he got sick and I decided to continue to help taking care of other people. I also took care of my father when he got sick a couple years ago. I just genuinely like to help take care of other people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to new caregiver would be to treat everybody like they're a part of your family.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget would be Larry. Every time I would come to the house, he'd always have a big smile on his face and wanting to come over and give me a big hug. He'd ask me how I was doing, smiling and I'd tell him "good" and he'd just laugh everytime. He always made my day better no matter what was going on.
