Hi, my name is Neffertiti. I live in Arlington, TX and I've been a caregiver for 22 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I have always had the desire and the heart to just help people who are unable to help themselves.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, always be understanding, have as much as patience as possible, and try not to get too attached to your client.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Lois. She was a client that I had for about four years. She had a twin sister who passed away before she did. She and I, we had a really good relationship. She always looked forward to me coming. She called me Tet and of course, my name is actually Nefertiti. She couldn't say that so she gave me a name of her own. And she was a very sweet woman. We had a really good relationship.
