Hi, my name is Claudia and I live in the city of Irvine, CA. I've been a caregiver for eight years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my niece was diagnosed with autism and she needed a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to speak from other mentors or staff. And just continue to learn from other professional caregivers who have had many experiences in this field.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Ms. Gevoris. She was diagnosed with dementia, yet she was still always very optimistic. She recently passed away, but I will always remember her being optimistic. Even when she was going through physical illness, she always tried to look on the bright side of life.
