Hi my name is Barbara. I stay in Oakland, CA and I've been a caregiver for eight years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I enjoy taking care of others. I'm a loving, responsible, and caring person.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, be responsible, be accurate, be on time, and love your job.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I would never forget, his name was Michael. I took care of him for five years. He was just like a brother to me. We enjoyed each other. We played with each other. We talked with each other. I took care of him, his personal needs. I took him on doctors' appointments. I took him out, did his errands and we just had a lovely time. We enjoyed each other. He was just like my family.
