Can you tell us a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
My name is Trina. I live in Treasure Island and I’ve been a caregiver for 7 years. I became a caregiver because I like helping elderly people. I know that they need somebody to be there with them. I really like being there to help somebody else out.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
One of the ladies that I work for is an elderly lady, and she has a lot of needs. I do everything for her. I cook for her, get her clothes ready, bathe her, we go to bingo together, everything. I've grown to know a lot of her family, since I've been working with her for five years. She's really nice. She makes me happy and I make her happy too.
What do you think makes you a great caregiver?
People tell me that I'm a great caregiver because I'm very punctual, loving, and honest. I listen to them. I meet all their needs and I'm there for them. I'm making them happy, and they're very satisfied at the end of the day.
