Hi. My name is Tacara. I live in Houston, TX. I've been a personal caregiver for almost 1 year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love giving back and taking care of the elderly because they've taken care of our generation so I just like to give back to them.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be have patience, be a good listener, and have compassion for the client that you're taking care of. And don't think of it as a job but think of it as you're caring for a family member. And just do your job the best you can.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
Client I will never forget is Doris. She used to tell me stories about her childhood and stories about when she first got married. And if I was ever thinking about getting married how to be a good wife. And overall she just talked to me about life. I will never forget her.
