Hi, my name is Joy. I live in Spring, TX. I have been a caregiver for 10 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my personality. I love to care for seniors because I am a very warm, compassionate person.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be always be patient, kind, and be willing to listen to the individual you're taking care of. Always be willing to assist as best as possible so the individual will feel at home and be comfortable with you as their caregiver.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Jane. She always wants us to go shopping because she always wants to leave the house, and just go to stores, and just do eye shopping, and she loves for us to play card games. That would be of great fun to her and myself. She would always give me thanks, and praise, and would wish I would stay with her. She was a very memorable person to work for.
