Hi! My name is Esther. I live in Quinlan, Texas. I have been a caregiver for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my father-in-law had dementia and I helped take care of him. And it was rewarding to be able to help care for him.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, be attentive to the client, listen to the client, and observe the client.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client that I would never forget is Margaret. She had dementia, she really didn't know how to put on her clothes. Sometimes, she didn't know how to eat. I would have to show her and then she would have such a great sense of humor about her that I loved.
