Hi, my name is Josephine. I'm from Fort Worth, TX and I have worked for three years as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I used to live with my grandmother and my grandfather so I loved working with them.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to just be loving, care for the old and love them, and just listen to them when they need you to. Listen to them. Work with them. Do what you're supposed to. Work with them. Monitor their medication very carefully, and support them emotionally.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Sofie because I worked with her for a very long time and we bonded so much. So when I lost her, I was very heartbroken because we have built this bond that was very, very strong. Even now, I still think she's the best person I've ever worked with.
