Hi, my name is Kimberly. I live in Lubbock, TX and I've been a caregiver off and on for about two or three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I actually had loved ones that needed care, but in years of doing it I actually was able to communicate with the people that were needing help. I love helping people and being there for someone that can't do for themselves.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, take your time, be patient with who you're caring for, never rush, and just get an understanding about the person that you're actually helping.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget was my cousin. She was the most loving, caring, never really just felt down unless she was hungry, or tired, or needed to be changed. Always laughing and just special moments with her before she passed on. Yes, she was a very, very, very good client of mine.
