Hi. My name is Veronica. I live in Nevada, and I have been caregiver for eight years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became the caregiver because my mom. My mom is a nurse in Czech Republic. So she inspired me because when I was little girl, I saw her when she take care of another patient and client. It was so nice, so I felt the feeling when you take care of somebody who needs you.
What advice would you give to a new caregiver?
My advice to new caregiver, it will be, be honest, be kind, be nice, be clean, be patient and share with your feelings with your client because it is important.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I never forget is one woman. She was 80 years old, and she was in a hospital on geriatrics center back in Czech Republic. She had Alzheimer disease, but she was so nice and kind, and we spent much time together and I take care of her. I remember she really likes the positioning because much people don't like the positioning, so it was nice for her. She really likes watching TV, and one time I remember that I came back from school and I spending time with her just watching on one television show speak each other about this show - about the actors, about the story which was taken. It was really nice time
