Hello, my name is Lakenya. I live in Thomasville, GA and I have been a caregiver for a total of nine years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver due to I love helping others that aren't able to help themselves or those that need assistance to make them comfortable in their environment, to make them feel like they're regular human beings.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be the main golden rule, treat others as if you would want to be treated. Treat each individual as if it was your family member, your mother, your father, your grandmother, granddad, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, treat those people as if you would want to be treated.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I would never forget is Mr. Paul. Mr. Paul have no relatives that is close by. Our conversations is one thing that he says he always waited on when it was time for me to visit. He just needed someone to talk to, someone to assist him and someone to make it feel as if he was not alone.
