Hi, my name is Doua. I live in Fresno, CA and I've been a caregiver for 1 year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I loved one got sick and was placed in hospice, and now she's way better now and living with my family.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be is to be passionate and love what you do.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I will never forget is Va, she was sick and was placed in hospice, I took care of her and she fought through her sickness. Even though she couldn't walk, she still tried her best to get up. She would never use a wheelchair, she said that it was embarrassing so everytime we were going to go somewhere she would rather use her walker and forced herself to walk. She told me stories of her past -- about her life, she was an amazing client, now she is out of hospice, able to ambulate. She was my best client.
