Hi, my name is Susannah. I live in Mesquite, TX. I've been a caregiver for 13 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I become a caregiver because I started taking care of my grandad. So I love taking care of people after that, so that's why I´ve been a caregiver firstly.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be focus on your job. Do your job description. If it calls you to give a shower, give a shower, dressing, grooming, and to care that if you think to be possible for the patient that he need or she need to give to you possible steps for the patient to be satisfied.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I will call the client by the first name Mister, and Mister was, for example if I have a client by the name of Charles, I'm going to say, "Mister Charles."
