Hi, my name is Catherine. I've been a caregiver for 10 years, and I live in Phoenix, AZ.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I want to reach out to needy people in the hospital and in the other facilities and to provide care for them.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, work diligently and take your work seriously, not only for money, but also to serve the elderly. It's rewarding when you make a difference to other people's life.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is, I was working on a night shift when this client was trying to move her wheelchair, then I took her to her room, and I put her to her bed and I sat down near her, we started talking and she told me stories.
