Hi, my name is Linda. I live in El Paso, TX and I have been a caregiver for two to three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandmother got sick. She later after a few years passed. Then my mother had a heart attack, and I took care of her. And that's something that I really enjoy, try helping others.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, first of all, kindness. Get to know them and what their needs are.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Agustina. She never gave up in life. No matter how much pain she was in, she loved life. Always smiling, tried to keep a smile on her face. She never wanted anybody to see how she was in so much pain. And that is somebody I will never forget.
