Hi, my name is Geraldine. I live in Sacramento, CA and I've been a caregiver for over 10 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I was recruited back home to the staff of California in Walnut Creek in 2006, and I've had the pleasure of working with the elderly since.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to have patience, compassion, and understanding of what the elderly are going through.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Papa Dean because he was always there with me when I wake up to prepare breakfast, lunch, or dinner. And we would be making conversation. And he has passed.
