Hi. I am Grace. I live in Pittsburg, CA and I've been a caregiver for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I wanted to help out elderly people, I am very happy seeing them satisfied with my help. I took care of my grandma and I have a passion of taking care of them. I love what I am doing.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be just love what you are doing and just understand them because they're getting old, some elderly people have dementia or Alzheimer's, so we are the one who will understand them and just to love them as your own. Just love what you're doing.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I would never forget is my client in Hawaii who is Margaret. Every time I go to her place, I always make her smile. I make sure she always do whatever she wants, that she is safe, she is smiling, she's eating good and that's what she likes about me. Every time I go to her house, we always laugh, I always tell a story to her, which she enjoys. I always massage her feet and everything. I take care of her like my own that's why every time I go there she treat me like her granddaughter also and she always looks for my name in our agency where I work for and we are always happy every time I go there.
