Hi, my name is Karel. I live in Houston, TX and I have been a caregiver for one year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I had to care for a loved one. So I just developed a passion for being a caregiver. That's how I became a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, you have to be calm to the patient. You have to interact with the patient, and listen calmly. You don't need to be rude to the patient. Work with the patient. You have to be patient. You have to listen and always be polite to them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Sandrine. She was so kind, very calm. She was a good client.
