Hello! My name is Paula. I live in the City of Arlington, TX, and I've been a caregiver for 35 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because, as a youth, my grandmother was a registered nurse, and she used to take me to work with her. So I was inspired by that.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to always treat people the way that you want to be treated, or how you would want your family members treated.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Ann. l loved Ann, because she always told me how important I was and how she felt like I was a member of her family. And it was just great.
