Hi, my name is Tequlia ,and I live in Thomasville, GA and I've been a caregiver for seven years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver when I started caring for others. When I was a little girl, I used to go to work with my grandmother, and I used to sit with the other patients inside the nursing home facility. And ever since then, I just loved to care for older people and care for others, also.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to have good communication with your client.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Pop. He was a lovely man, and I really cared about him until he passed away. His family really got attached to me, and I got attached to his family, and I always used to sit with him overnight at the nursing home unti he passed away.
