Hi, my name is Dominique. I live in Kenner, LA and I've been a caregiver for 10 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a personal caregiver with my family member and then I found my own patient, and I've been with that patient for 10 years. And my patient just died, but I love what I do and I'm looking forward to meeting a new patient.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always be on time. Be helpful. Be respectful, loving, caring.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I would never forget is Elaine. She was very, very sweet and I loved working with her. I really loved working with her. She was nice. It's just sad that she died a couple of weeks ago. I loved working with her. She was very sweet, very kind, very helpful.
