Hi, my name is Rose. I live in Fort Lauderdale, FL and I have 17 years of caregiving experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love helping people. Making them comfortable, be responsible for them. I enjoy doing this job.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be is to be patient, be responsible, treat them with tender, loving, care. Listen to them. Don't talk to them too loud. Make sure you understand. Give them respect.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Lenora. One day I went to her house and I sat with her and said I'll give her a shower. And she says to me she doesn't want to take a shower. She said to me, "Wow, you look so pretty." It made me smile. I will never forget that.
