Hi, my name is Laura. I live in Cypress, TX and I've been a caregiver for 19 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver to care for loved ones and because I like taking care of people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice would be to always listen to your patient. Always be patient with your patient and be observant, try to always be professional, never judgemental and just listen because they know themselves better than you know them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
One of my most memorable clients is a little boy. He couldn't do anything for himself. Had to feed and take care of him, couldn't move but he was such an angel. Now you have to realize, everyone is still special and they touch your heart regardless of what they can or can't do, That everyone deserves love and deserves care. He will always stay in my mind.
