Hi, my name is Donna. I live in Hayward, CA and I have 15 years of caregiving experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love people. My son is handicapped and I've taken care of him after also taking care of my parents. It's something that I want to do, I want to give back something for the people that really need it.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to have patience, understanding, accuracy, and just love. Just be there for them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client that I will never forget - there's so many - but the one that comes to mind is Rose. I took care of her for four years and I remember her smile, her eyes, the things that she taught me, and above all, her love.
