Hi, my name is Rosemarie. I live in Katy, Texas. I have four years experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I want to help people, people with disabilities or the elderly. I love to care for them because my first job was working as a caregiver for the 90 year old senior women here in Katy, TX. So, I love working with them, especially people with disabilities.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to work hard and be sure the patients do their activities of daily living, like showers, feeding them, and give their medicines on time. And you need to take good care of your patients.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is my client now, because he does not like the other caregivers. He wants me to care for him. When we are together, he's always laughing. But with other caregivers, he gets mad at them. But with me, he's happy. That's why I care about him a lot.
