Hi, my name is Brittney. I live in Lodi, CA and I have been a caregiver for five years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mother got sick when I was 16-years-old. I took care of her for five years until she passed away, and I have loved being a caregiver ever since and I can't imagine doing anything else.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to just stay calm and to be able to just care for the person as if it was your own loved one, and to care as if you were the just the one who would be in their shoes.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget would be Laurie which is my mother. She was the most upbeat person. The most wonderful, and sweetest lady to take care of. She was just wonderful and just so sweet. She had the most beautiful smile in the morning when you would get her up and just the most beautiful smile when you would tuck her in at night. It was just the most wonderful experience taking care of her everyday
