Hi, my name is Christina and I live in Rancho Cordova, CA. I have been a caregiver for 15 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandmother was sick and she became bedbound, and my mother was in the home with her also but she had cancer.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to make sure that the client is always comfortable and that you and the client are compatible with each other.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is Kenneth. Kenneth could be up all night having the hardest time of his life during the night and once he's seen me, his whole mood would change. No matter how bad I would be feeling, I would come in and he would just make me smile and make my day even brighter. And that, I will never forget.
