Hi, my name Yajaira, I live in Pharr, TX and I've worked as a caregiver for almost 2 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mom, herself, is a caregiver. Growing up, I've always seen her care for other people and make a difference, and I wanted to do the same.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, treat the patient that you're caring for with love and compassion as you would like somebody else to take care of your loved ones and/or yourself.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget would be Margaret. Every time I come and visit her to take care of her, we try to have our chats and we try to make each other laugh, saying goofy comments or anything that comes to mind. I ask her about her life and she tells me about her life, as much as she can remember
