Hi, my name is Modupe. I live in the city of Houston, TX. I've been a caregiver for four years now.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I cared for little ones, someone close to me, my mother, and my grandmother. I love to care for little ones, I love making people happy, and I love to assist people. I just love doing it because it gives me fulfilment knowing I can bring life to somebody else.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always make people happy no matter what you're going through; put your situation aside and don't let it take over you. Always be nice, be honest, and be straightforward with whatever you're doing, and love your job because if you don't love your job, there's nothing you can accomplish. Love what you're doing because if you love what you're doing, the people that you're helping and you're caring for, they're going to see how loving a person you are.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Miss Peterson. Miss Peterson is always loving, she always appreciates people, and she always make you feel comfortable. She's always nice and, due to her health, she usually struggles. She's too nice; she's very calm and not aggressive. Anytime she needs something, she tries to do it for herself. She always motivates herself to do something.
