Hello, my name is Israel. I live in Warner Robins, GA. I've been a caregiver for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love taking care of people, and I like seeing them when they are well and acting normal because I hate to see people when they're sick.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always do what you were told in school, and make sure that you don't neglect, you always show sympathy for the person you are taking care of. Don't ever take your job for granted, and make sure that you do everything you can to take care of them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is this person I was taking care of. He was real sick and he wanted to just die. So, I was telling him about how wonderful life is when they get back to feeling good and get back to normal, all the things they could do to help other people, and how wonderful it is to really live. And to make sure that they always take care of theirselves and heath is first.
