Hi, my name is Brittany. I live in Los Angeles, CA and I have 3 years of experience working as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandmother got sick and it inspired me to help others along the way. That's why I have experience of three years because after high school I basically went to homecare and got experience there and that's what I did.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be treat people how you would like to be treated because some people get taken advantage and don't realize how it is to feel that way. So I feel like if you put yourself in their shoes, you'll feel more comfortable about it.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
One client I do remember, her name is Ms. Bradford and she was such a sweet lady. Even though she had stage three in cancer and she was always in pain, I always made a way to make her feel comfortable and safe. That's what she loved about me and I just loved the fact that she welcomed me into her home to care for her. I made sure of that every single day when I went to work.
