Hi, my name is Teairra. I live in Pittsburgh, PA. I've been a caregiver for five years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver, because my grandfather developed dementia, and he needed full time care, and I was interested in taking care of him.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be be patient with your patient, be understanding, be considerate, be caring, and try to understand that this is a hard time for both the family and the patient.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Miss Jeanie. She was very loving. She had a lot of wisdom. She told me many stories of her life and all the vacations she took, how her wedding was, and the children she raised.
