Hi. My name is DeJeuner, and I have been a caregiver for 3 years, and I currently live in Antioch, CA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandmother had become very ill and was unable to do things for her own self, so since I love helping people, I decided to step in and care for her. I bathed her - well, I did. I did bathe her, I did take her to doctor's appointments, I did cook her food, I did clean her house, and I also gave her her medications on time.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be just to take your time, be patient, and be caring and considerate of the next person.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is Miss Sally. Even though she was unable to care for herself, she was always a happy and delightful person. I loved working with her. Even under her circumstances, she was always positive, and giving good feedback, and giving good advice. I just loved her.
