Hi. My name is Debbie. I live in Mesquite, Texas. I've been a caregiver for four years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because in the future I would like to be able to support and take care of my parents. I enjoy taking care and helping others with everyday living experiences and just to know that I am helping in the community.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to make sure you have patience, be a good listener, be a good encourager, motivator, and make sure to always be nice and friendly.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Jerry. Jerry loves to have dinner and that both Jerry and the caregiver sit at the table together while he talks about stories that happened in his past. I will never forget Jerry. Jerry always says thank you and he always tells me that he enjoys my services and my time spent with him.
