Hi, my name is Wanda. I live in Lancaster, TX. I've been a caregiver for two and a half years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver when my grandmother got sick. I took care of her, and I love taking care of elderly people that unfortunatly can't take care of themselves. So I would like to give back.
What piece of advice would you give to a new caregiver?
My advice to a caregiver is to listen to your clients. Be patient with them and do what you are supposed to do.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
Her name was Doris. Me and her, we used to talk all the time after I'd do my job. And sometimes she would get down and depressed, she would call me and I'd be trying to motivate her. And I just fell in love with that client.
