Hi, I'm Michelle. I live in Keller, TX and I have 10 years of personal caregiving.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver over 15 years because I find great joy in providing companion care, personal assistant care and home health care for the elderly.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be very detail oriented, be very compassionate, very patient, very kind, be very punctual, be very alert, too, in the event of an emergency and have a care plan in place and know who, when and how to contact whomever in the event of an emergency.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I will never forget is Mrs. Miller and my duties were caring personally about her because she was a very compassionate individual, very loving. I enjoyed her many stories of many of her trips to Jamaica and stories our country. She left her mark on me when she passed away because she treated me with understanding and that made me feel special and in return, I was able to give her the greatest care that she needed during her last days.
