Hi. My name is April. I live in Sacramento, CA and I've been a caregiver for 9 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mother and father needed care and I was the option that they had. After realizing that it's hard to come by a compassionate, caring person to care for your loved ones, I just fell in love with the job.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be loving and compassionate and persevere in the goals of the person that you're caring for because caring really matters.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is Sarah because she was autistic and she had a great sense of humor. She was really a loving person.
