Hi, my name is Ericka. I've been a caregiver for over three years. I live in San Antonio, TX.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because over the years watching so many people not having enough family to care for them or the family don't have enough time, so just my caring and empathy for people, it kept me inspired to help others.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be always to listen. Take your time to put yourself in the situation of the client, just be responsive and on time.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget was Linda. She was always smiling no matter what and when I came in through the door, she would remind me of something we did the week of and said, "Oh I so, I would love to do that again because I'm not having a good day." She brings a smile to my face, so that I had loved her and I will always love her. I cherish the times that we had together.
