Hear Home Instead CAREGiver℠ Shelley T. talk about what you can get in return from a caregiving job and the impact clients have had on her life.
"What you get in return from this job is priceless," says Shelley. "Caregiving to me is going that extra mile, getting to know that client inside and out. Getting to know what they like, what they don’t like, making them feel special."
"I just feel like I have the ability to connect with people and listen to them. That’s what’s so important in this job, is listening. You’re not just going there to put in eight hours. You’re truly listening to what they have to say," says Shelley.
Shelley believes that the impact both her clients have had on her life and the impact she has had on theirs will be lasting. "Without them," Shelly says of her clients, "I wouldn’t be the same person."
