1. How did you hear about Seniors for Seniors and why did you decide to join the company?
I heard about Seniors for Seniors through a coworker. Being a nurse, I am equipped to apply all areas of nursing experience and expertise to my clients. I am also able to learn a lot from my elerly clients, they have many stories and personal experiences to share.
2. What is your favourite companion/caregiver experience or story?
I once had a client who was from England. I did three 12 hours shifts with her as a companion. I am not too fond of cats because I am afraid that they will scratch me. One day I had to open a tin of cat food for my client's cat. The cat appeared to like me. She would always come and sit beside me whenever I went to see my client.
3. How has Seniors for Seniors benefited your clients?
Seniors for Seniors is a reliable company. They are good with finding a companion who is suitable for the senior.
4. How has being a Seniors for Seniors caregiver enriched your life?
Variety is the spice of life. Being a companion, I get some of that variety every time I see my clients.
