Hi, my name is Doris. I live in Long Beach, CA. I have been a caregiver for two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because that is the way I have always been. I have a natural passion to help people and to care for my loved ones. In my culture, we care for our loved ones no matter what happens to them. It is a normal way of life for me.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be empathic to your people. You are giving care to and to always be patient with the client you are taking care of. Always think of how it feels to be the one receiving care.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I will never forget is Terry. I will always remember her because the way she appreciates what I'm doing, the way she says thank you to me. I love taking care to her.
