Hi! My name is Karimen. I live in Grapevine, TX, and I have been a caregiver for a year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I want to help people, and I thought becoming a caregiver will give me experience in the nursing field. I am working on my nursing degree.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to just be patient with clients and have a lot of empathy for them and understand that they need as much help as possible and just be there for them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Mrs. Josephine. She's always been really helpful and understanding and really caring about me. And her and I have learned to work with each other, and that has really helped me feel more valued. And it's also taught me how to appreciate my clients more.
