Hi, I'm Grace. I live in Los Angeles,CA and I have one year of caregiving experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I watched my mom caregive for my grandma growing up and I've always loved older adults. I'm studying gerontology, so I really enjoy caring for older people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be patient and to listen first instead of assuming that you know what's best or what's right.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is a woman named Donna who was in unfortunate circumstances in her home and was living with ALS for several years and needed a lot of help. She wasn't being taken care of properly by her children or husband and I really enjoyed my time with her, making meals, bathing her, toileting, even painting her toenails, just making her feel more comfortable and cared for.
