Hi, my name is Tiffany. I live in Hempstead, TX. And I've been a caregiver for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a home help provider because I'm sweet, I have well manners, I like helping people that need help. And basically, at the end of the day, I love the elderly. I love helping them do whatever they need to do.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to get to know the patient very well, where you can understand their needs, even though you know the needs the people have now. Get to know all these and understand them better.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Joe. The reason I will never forget him because every time I would go to the nursing home, he would call my name. He always wanted me to do everything for him, get his meds, feed him, get him up in the morning, and etc.
