Hi, my name is Hattie. I live in Fort Worth, TX and I have 16 years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love to help people. I have a caring heart. It takes a very special person to do this job, and I think that's me.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to have patience, understanding, to monitor and look at body language, and find facial expressions that you can't always see from people that can't speak. You have to be aware of the surroundings and body language and facial expression.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Elizabeth. She wanted to be called dear, though. Very sweet, loving, caring person. Glad I had a chance to meet her.
