Hi, my name is Antwynae. I live in Antioch, CA and I've been a caregiver for 2 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my father was diagnosed with cancer and I was the only one available to take care of him full time. So that's what really got me into helping others and wanting to take care of others in their time of need.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be patient with the client, understand their circumstances and the situations that they are in.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is my very first client. Even though she has dementia, me and her bonded real well. Her being at home with her family, we talked about my family and Michael, her nephew.
