Hi! My name's Christine. I live in Sunnyvale, CA, and I've been a caregiver for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because, my grandma and my grandpa needed care, and then my grandfather passed away, and my grandma started developing dementia. So, we cared for her for another three years, and then I worked my hours in assisted living.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to care for them like they're your own family, and know that they're depending on you, and you're there to make their days easier, and have them better life.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Bob. I cared for him in the assisted living, and in the beginning he was a little difficult. But, we worked with him very well, and he ended up being our favorite patient, and he loved us.
