Hi, my name is Eireen. I live in Carmichael, CA and I've been caregiving for one year and been nursing for CCU for two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I like to work with old people. I like to do more stuff. I am in nursing. I am Egyptian before I became an American. I was working as registered nurse in Egypt. I worked for CCU. I like to help as much I can. I enjoy my work.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, try to be patient, try and enjoy the work. Because if you like the work and you enjoy it, you will be able to make the person you work for happy.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Cassie. She's a very good person. She and her family usually treat me not just anyone but the person who care for her, or give her medication, or help care for anything, to clean or cook for. She's a very nice woman. I will never forget her.
