Hi! My name is Genesis. I have been a caregiver for seven years. And I live in Compton, CA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I enjoyed helping others. Also, I get the feeling of accomplishment when I know I helped someone else. The first person that I cared for was my grandfather when he was diagnosed with cancer. And then I just developed a passion for caregiving after that.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to have patience and not to get frustrated.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget was Miss Lillian. I always remember how she was also very happy when I would come. And we would always laugh. And how she confided in me that she was scared of being alone, but she was happy when I would come to be her companion.
