Hi, I'm Elizabeth and I live in Pittsburgh, CA. I have worked for five years as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I have a heart for caring to people in need, and especially the elderly. Right now, I'm just finishing my LVN program. I would like to take care the elderly.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be patient, ask if you do not understand some things, and to be caring as much as you can.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is one gentleman that I cared for. He was an elderly, about 90 years. He was a lawyer and had dementia, so most of the time he could not remember. So, my job was to be patient, and would always remind him if I see he forgot things, and to take care of him.
