Hi, my name is Monique. I live in San Antonio, TX and I've been a caregiver for 20 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I am passionate about the elderly people and I love what I do. I enjoy being around people in general. I've been doing this for 20 years and it's been nothing but a blessing to me. It's also been a learning experience for wisdom.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to always be yourself, to be open and loving and, if you don't understand how to do something then always ask questions to be on the safe side.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is Bianca. She was a client that I had when I was in another city in Texas and she was just a happy person in general. She had a big heart, just very loving. She end up passing away and it was very emotional for me but it was very heartwarming for me also because of all the time that I've spent with her and all the time that I invested in her.
