Hi, my name is Joycelyn. I live in Lake Charles, LA right now. And I've been a caregiver for 30 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver when my sister became sick. And I enjoyed working with the elderly.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to be considerate, caring, loving, passionate, and show them that you want to do your job and love your job and to make sure that the client or the patient is being taken good care of.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Ms. Helen. She's very sweet, caring, loving, very funny. She always made me laugh and she likes to dance. She likes to eat. She likes to walk a lot. She's very, very passionate and very sweet. I really do miss her.
