Hi my name is Genobeva and I live in Granada Hills, CA. I am a caregiver for a year and a half and I have a certification from the school as a CNA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I took care of my mother and my mother in law for years. Also I have experience in dementia and alzheimers.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for the new caregiver will be don't ever forget the five principles of care. Always have compassion for the client.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Kitty. She is a very wonderful lady. She just need love and attention. I still have her. Now she's started with dementia, stage one and she needs me. I love her so much and I will help as much as I can. I let her do as much as she can do for her self respect.
