Hello! My name is Cassie, and I live in Modesto, CA. And I have 26 years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love working with the elderly and handicapped. And so I started years ago in a hospital, and I just continued to do it throughout the years.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, just to enjoy the client that you have, and to be patient. Learn to be patient, because each and every individual has a different personality and different character.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Bonnie. We connected right off as soon as I went to her house. And I would always take her to Starbucks coffee. That was our thing, to always have Starbucks coffee. And she loved me to cook, the different things that I cook, because she loved my cooking, and she was into recipes. She had recipes upon recipes of books, and so we connected through our cooking.
