Hi, my name is Buffy and I live in San Diego, California. My years of experience is over 12.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my mother. When I was a child, I used to go to work with her and help her with the residents. So that's where I've grown to love taking care of people and if given a chance, I guarantee you you will.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a caregiver would be to be patient and to remember that they are elderly patients and they need your kindness and your sympathy and for you to take care of them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
There was a client that I will never forget. She would not respond to other people but when I met her, she had this sparkle in her eye and I got her some flowers and every time I think of her now I remember her clapping her hands and getting excited
