About
Hi, my name is Marissa and I live in Allen, TX. I have been a caregiver for almost three years.

How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I realized the need of a compassionate caregiver after my church volunteer work in early 2015.

What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to be more patient with your senior clients. Sympathize, and empathize, and be considerate at all times.
 
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Sarah.She used to live a very independent life until she was 87 years old. She's still living independently; however, the first time I met her, she refused to socialize. I decided to involve her in assisted living in the senior recreation center in her community where she could do chair yoga, and pool aerobics. She eventually learned to meet and love other seniors.
