Hi. My name is Marinella Elliot. I live in Houston, TX and I have been a caregiver for 2-and-a-half years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I worked for the father of one of my best friends and I fell in love with this type of job. I really have a lot of patience and love for elder people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver will be, if they are lucky to be around another caregiver, to observe the way they work because you always can learn new techniques and new ways to make your job a lot easier.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget was Mr. Roberts. He was always smiling, he was always happy no matter what was going on in his life. He had a heart condition that no matter what, he was always positive, an incredible person.
