Hi, my name is Myris, I live in Spring, TX and I've been a caregiver for one year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver after watching my mom take care of my great-grandfather when I was young, and being able to help her and helped her take care of the other elderly. I enjoyed it very much so I decided to become a caregiver for the elderly.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be patient with the client when you're helping them with anything. Show them that you care. Show them that you're going to be there to support them. You won't let anything to happen to them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Mrs. Zapata. She was a nice elderly lady. She was nice and sweet and enjoyed my company. She felt like a grandmother to me. And that's my most client that I would enjoy being with.
