Hi, my name is Janique and I live in Bryan, TX. And I have been a caregiver for about three years now.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love helping others and knowing that you're making a big impact in someone's everyday life, just brings me so much joy. And I love doing caregiving.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to provide as much companionship as you can. Because going to their home, they have to really be able trust you and know that you will come in there with a positive attitude every day, no matter what.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget, I can't remember her name because it's been a couple of years. But she was my favorite client because no matter what she was going through, no matter what I was going through, we opened ourselves and told each other about our lives every day. And she treated me as I was one of her own. I just love going to that lady every day and I was happy to wake up every morning knowing that I was making an impact in her life.
