Hello, my name is Corlis. I live in Miramar, Florida and I been a caregiver for over 20 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver due to the fact that taking care of people in need is something that I really really enjoyed doing as a child growing up. And then also I had experience with taking care of my grandmother and my brother before they passed away.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, love what you do and take care of people the way that you would want to be taken care of and just know that one day you could become a senior or somebody in need that might need help as well.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget, her name is Julie. She was 102 when she passed away and no matter when she sees me, she was just so happy and she made me happy. And she always had the cutest things to say and pretty much made my day.
