Hi, my name is Kim. I live in Brookshire, TX. I've been a caregiver for 29 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I was looking for a job and I found a job in the town I lived in with no car. Now, that it is all I do, I'm a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My new advice to a new caregiver would be, to be kind, patient and loving.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I would never forget is Marie. She was a difficult client at the beginning. I was working in a nursing facility but at the end of it all, she became my best patient. She became my family and then I became a family of her, there's two daughters, all her grandkids and a son-in-law.
