Hi my name is Deone. I live in Sacramento, CA. I've been a caregiver for 15 years and more.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver working with my grandfather many years, like bathing him, taking showers, feeding, dressing, doctor appointments to and from. I really have compassion for elderly elder people, to help with other people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to make sure that you're always on top of everything and good at what you do and have a compassion for elderly people is what it's really about, working with the elderly people.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget working with was Corraine. I worked with her up until she died, like taking her to her doctor appointment, bathing her, dressing her, reading the bible to her. Have a very nice time working with her. I really enjoy work with her until she passed on.
