Hi, my name is Donna. I live in New Orleans, LA and I've been a caregiver for about 15 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I become a caregiver because I love my job and I love what I doing.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
I become a caregiver because I used in a nursing home, take care of patients. I love the patients in the nursing home. Now I'm working in a hospital. But now, I still do home health and working with elderly. And I like talking to them, being with them, and conversation with them at all the time.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I used to have a client. She never wanted me to leave. She asked me to stay til the end. I did. I had to do everything for her because her family never came along. And I was most of her caregiver. And she loved me and loved her back.
