Hello, my name is Christina. I live in Downey, CA and I've been a caregiver for about nine years now.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love helping those that are in need. And I love to take care of the elderly or anyone that needs help, I enjoy it. Because there's some people out there that needs someone to take care of them and I love doing that.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always communicate with your patient and to be honest and responsible. Make sure that you take care of them and ask them questions and get their advice on what they need to be done. Just communicate with them so they'll know that you appreciate them and let them know that you care about them and they can have a relationship with you.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is my patient, Phil. He was always kind to me. He was always sharing these stories of what he used to go through and what was going on and it was just memorable. I just enjoyed his stories.
