Hi, my name is Beverly. I live in San Jacinto, CA and I've been a caregiver for 16 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mother inspired me to take care of the elderly. They need someone to love and show them a way to go in life, that it's not over yet.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to show a lot of love and affection to a recipient. Take care of them, clean them and be there for them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget, his name was Russell. I took care of him for five years and when he departed from me it was very hard but I had to stay strong for him and his family.
