Hi, my name is Fekerte. I live in Oakland, CA and I have 4 years of caregiving experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I've been take care of my grandma and grandpa before they passed away for four years. My grandma always told me that I have to care for others, especially the people who are seniors. Old people just really inspire me and to continue what I want, just helping people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is patience is a very important thing. We need listen, have willingness, and be helpful. Wearing a smile is very important. We need to smile when we are around them. We need to be patient. We need to be happy and give them good energy.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client of I will never forget is a female. She was really fun, and I will never forget her. Everything she said makes me laugh. She's always happy. Unfortunately, she passed away. She was 98 years old. I miss her already and may God bless her.
