Hi, my name is Ella. I live in McKinney, TX and I have nine years of experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love helping older adults who cannot do activities by themselves anymore or activities of the daily living and I just love the environment of working in a medical field.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, be patient, be compassionate and always safety first. Keep an eye to the residents because there's always changes, especially with adults with their medications.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client that I would never forget is Jara. She is a very funny person that I've ever taken care of. She loves outdoors, she had an Alzheimer's and it was heartbreaking when she passed. She is the most funny person I've ever taken care of and she's always a positive person.
