Hi, my name is Grace Ann and I live in Toronto, Canada right now, and I've been a caregiver for five years taking care of the elderly and childcare.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I really love this job being a caregiver. Especially childcare and also, taking care of the elderly. I'm really passionate about the job. I also have more patience and understanding about their feelings.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, based on my experience as a caregiver for five years, I should say that make sure you love your job. You need to have more patience, more understanding and be sensitive to their feelings.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client or employer I will never forget is when I was a lived-in caregiver with her for five months, she was a Jewish, and she was very nice to me. Very kind as a mother and I easily got along with her because she was like a parent to me. Our relationship was like mother and daughter.
