Hi, my name is Andrea. I live in Fresno, CA. I've been a caregiver for 15 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver when my mother got sick and I was taking care of her and then I went to school to be a Medical Assistant. Then I went to school to be a Certified Nursing Assistant. I enjoy helping others, so I do caregiving, as well.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, she would have to enjoy working with others and helping out others as a caregiver.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget was this lady that I took care of and I was there all the time. When she got sick and went to the hospital I went to visit her and she told me that she was a little worried because she thought that I was never coming back. So that really touched my heart knowing that the love you give always comes back.
