Hi, my name is Shataka. I live in the city of Fort Worth, TX and I have been a caregiver for nine years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I was inspired to be a caregiver in high school. I volunteered at the county hospital and there I was taken under the wing of nurses and doctors who instructed me to further my education in caregiving.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always keep patient, always treat your resident just as if they were like your loved one or your mother. Treat them how you would want your family member to be treated.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I would never forget would be Mrs. Dottie. Me and Dottie loved to play music. She loved to sing Frank Sinatra and that was our daily thing. We shared music.
