Hi, my name is Felicia. I live in Marrero, LA and I have 12 years of experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I also cared for my elderly grandmother, my elderly grandfather, my husband's grandmother who has Alzheimer's, and I also have a personal experience with having a child that was born with cerebral palsy.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, always be patient, be careful, pay attention, and always just make sure that you're keeping a close eye on the person that you're giving care for.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Lisa. She is a very, very, very nice person. She's always making sure that instead of you just taking care of her that everything is okay with you. She's always willing to help out take care of herself as much as she can so that all the work won't be left up to you. I've always reminded her that that's why I'm here, to take care of you, and not for you to really take care of me, but I appreciate your kindness and always looking out for me.
