Hi, this is Cheryl. I live in Pittsburgh, California. I've been a caregiver for 13 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love taking care of elderly people, and when I was in junior high school, I've always wanted to take care of people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver, you will have to be patient, caring, and dependable.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is-- I had an elderly client that was 97 years old, and she was a stroke patient, and we really got along very well, and I was very saddened when she passed away.
