Hi, my name is Elayne. I've been a caregiver for 17 years and I live in San Antonio, TX.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my parents were going through cancer and surgery. They needed help and we needed someone to help us to take them to doctor's appointments and all kinds of different medical situations.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
I would tell every new caregiver to treat every patient or client as a family member and treat them how you would want your family member to be treated.
