My name is Brigitte. I live in Pittsburg, CA, and I've been caregiving for 5 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mom was sick and had cancer, and I was taking care of her. And I found it very rewarding to take care of some elderly people or even younger people that has no family.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, be patient and courteous and kind because you are in someone else's home. Respect their space.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is a young lady that I cared for that had no family that came to visit her. And holidays, I spent time with her, Mother's Day and different type of days like that. And she was very kind, and I was very kind to her, and it was very rewarding.
