Hi, my name is Michelle. I live in Avondale, AZ and I have one year of experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver after helping take care of one of my loved ones.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be have patience, and to always show compassion, and just to have a lot of care towards the elderly. And to remember that some of them may have no families that come to visit or are lonely and just love to just have you be right by their side to help them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is June. She had some dementia and would always be asking for her husband. And we would just have to try to have her remember that he was no longer with her and to show her love and compassion. And she just always would love somebody to be by her side to hold her hand and just to talk to her. And I always remember her sweet words and her smile.
