Hi, my name is Arlene, I live in Vallejo, CA and I've been a caregiver for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I needed to care for a loved one after she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to treat every person as if they were your loved one, with patience, kindness, and consoling.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Rose. She was a successful business woman who literally just needed companionship and a helping hand while she struggled with a very rare disease.
