Hi, my name is Felicia. I live in Modesto, CA and I've been a caregiver for two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mother started me. She was taking care of her brother and her niece and then she became a caregiver, so I decided to help her. I became a caregiver for two years and loved doing the job.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to take your time, be patient and understand where they come from because one day you got to get older and somebody got to take care of you, so you just got to be understanding and patient. So don't get too fast, you just got to very, very patient and get to know them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The person I'll never forget is . She was a very kind-hearted person. She was very, very nice. I just can't tell you more because she was just like a family member. She was not like a person I took care of. She was just like she was one of my family members, and she was very nice. I was helping her with everything. She's understanding. She was very kind and lovable. I'm going to miss her.
