My name is Mary Ochoa. I live in Corpus Christie, TX and I've been a caregiver for 8 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love working with the elderly. I love hands-on. I just really love working in this field.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always treat them the way you would want to be treated, the way you'd want your loved one to be treated. Just always with an open heart and compassion for everybody.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I never will forget is this one lady, she reminded me of my grandmother. And it was just so sweet how she was, and she was really funny. She would make you laugh. And just to help her at the end of the day and to know that she was happy really made you feel so appreciation for just everything that you have, and thankful
