Hi, my name is Fercedes. I live in Rochester, NY. I have been a caregiver for two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I want a job that shows my personality and give me more care assistant. And I just like working with the elderly and to put a smile on their face.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to reach a care curve, know your resident, introduce yourself and let them know what you're going to do, possible with you, and have confidence in what you were taught.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is my lady Dorothy. She was so destructed to be with us at my job. So, I just talked to her, got her comfortable, introduced her to the other residents and took her around. And now, today, she's still with us. And she's so adorable. You'll love the way she just loves us. She has wonderful kids. Her kids love her. She's sweet. She's just amazing. And it just shows me that I'm doing my job as a caregiver.
