Hi, my name is Tamara. I live in Danbury, CT and I've been a caregiver for four years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because before I started doing the caregiver positions, I used to help take care of my grandfather, until he eventually passed away, and I decided that it was something I liked to do and I enjoyed helping. So, I decided to just start doing the caregiving position.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always be understanding, always be patient, and that this job can be very rewarding. The clients usually are very grateful that you're there to help.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Ms. Dejani. I'll never forget her because every time I came to her house, she welcomed me with a hug. She was always so happy to see me. She would always tell me that, and every time I would make her laugh, she would call me an actor because she said I was funny. So, I will never forget her. She was just a very happy person, very grateful, very appreciative for my help.
