Hi, my name is Deanna. I live in Houston, TX and I have two years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandmother was really an elderly and had a health issue dealing with her heart. I would volunteer to just take care of her while she was in the nursing home, and I also got a part-time position at the nursing home where she was in.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, just be patient and really helpful, and accept your time with the elderly. Make sure that they're comfortable with you and make sure that you always meet their every need.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Miss Pam. She was always so positive, always smiling, and she just wanted me to just always be there for her.
