Hello! My name is Charles. And I have eight plus years of experience. And I live in the city of Downey, CA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I have seen my mother when she was ill, and nobody was really there to help out for her except for her family members. And also, I took care of my grandmother, right before she had passed, for the past five years. And that's pretty much the reason why I became a caregiver, to help out family members and anybody else that needs to be helped out.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to be patient with people, have compassion because not all days are going to be the same. And you need to remember that. And always be there for that person when they need to be attended for.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is my grandmother Gloria. I took care of her for five plus years. She was a beautiful woman and a beautiful lady. She had no problem with anybody in the world. She just always had a beautiful smile on her face.
