Hi, my name is Alexis. I live in Inglewood, CA. I've been a caregiver for six years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandfather had the beginning stages of Alzheimer's, so I started working with him and it just was something that I just loved to do.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be patience is the key. You have to be patient, you have love what you do.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is a guy that I worked with. One day he started to tell me his stories. I figured out that he went to high school with my grandfather and they were really good friends. He told all of the high school stories, all of the fun stories, all of the sad stories, all of the unbelievable stories.
