Hi! My name is Vanesha. I live in Houston, TX and I have been a caregiver for one year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my great-grandmother had gotten sick and at that point in time, she needed someone to care for her. And I was available, so I started helping out and being a caregiver for her and it was something I've just been interested in being a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to just be patient. You have to be caring and willing.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Ms. Madera. She was so sweet and just loving. She was just amazing. She really inspired me. I don't know. It was an experience that I will never forget.
