Hi, my name is Christie. I live in Fort Worth, TX and I've been a caregiver for 17 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandfather was put in a nursing home and he had poor care. So that made me want to become a caregiver to help patients and give them the best care possible.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be just be patient and try to learn as much as you can about your resident so you can be better at taking care of them and knowing what they need.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Miss Mae. She's 99 years old. She's happy and outgoing.
