Hi, my name is Stacey. I live in Miami, FL and I have been a caregiver for 10 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love helping people and I love caring for people. And it makes me feel good to know that I can impact someone's life in a positive manner by caring or helping them.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to pay very close attention to the person that you're caring for. Always listen to them and help them in any type of way that you can. Never leave them unattended and always keep an eye on everything that they do.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget, her name was Mary and she was a Down syndrome. She was very happy and she was just always excited to do everything that we did together. She was just a joy to be around.
