Hi, my name is Guilenne. I live in Decatur, GA and I've been a caregiver for 16 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my mother. She had been sick, she had surgery, I had to drop out of high school, but I continued and also finished high school. She had always been sick and because of that, I became her caregiver and her assistant as well.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, care for the client like it's your parent and yourself or as the client is a child. Care for them and just treat them like they are your parents.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget-- I don't have any.
