Hi my name is Caroline and I live in the city of Fremont,CA. I have four years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I took care of my grandmother. My grandmother has dementia and alzeimer's. In doing this for awhile, I realized that it made me think about that I could do this as a career. Now I feel happy because I am doing something that I enjoy.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a caregiver would be to be caring, loving and to be patient with their client.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is a lady who has cancer who had a tumor in her brain. She was in a lot of pain and crying and calling and being afraid of her situation. She was afraid to go but I will never forget this because I remember that these people when they are in their final days, they need a lot of love and understanding. She was very emotional so I sang to her. I talked to her and she liked that. Just to make her final days comfortable and peaceful. This was a very important situation for me and very emotional.
