Hi, my name is Amanda. I live in the city of Fresno, CA and I've been a caregiver for four years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my dad had passed away, and I regret on thinking of how I could have cared for him, so I just put the passion towards maybe helping somebody else in need. That's how I have the passion to care for other people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to have patience, be kind, friendly, loving, caring. Majority of patients that we do take care of need that type of love and feeling. Mainly patient.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Doc. He just gave me such a great experience on being his caretaker. something I never expected in a patient, I wasn't used to. But our relationship was so great. We had such a great bond. And that's something that I love in being a caregiver, is that I have such a great bond with each and every one of my clients. We have so many memories that will never be forgotten. And I was attached to him and I miss him every day.
