Hi. My name is Carlet and I live in Philadelphia, PA, and I've been a caregiver for 18 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I took care of my father and my grandmother with Alzheimer's disease, and I enjoyed taking care of them, and now I'm out to take care of someone else's loved ones.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is being patient, honest and a team worker, and just be yourself. And go with the flow and act you are taking care of your loved one.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget by the name of Jack that I took care of for ten years, that was very understanding, patient, easy to get along with, and I just loved him like he was my own father.
