Hi! My name is Halah. I live in Aliso Viejo, CA. And I have more than 4 years working as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my grandma. I took care of her when I was in high school for around five years. And a year after, my dad got sick, and I took care of him. That' s how I became a caregiver 4 years ago.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to be patient, happy and cheerful all the time. Never get bored or get mad with your client. You've got to be patient with them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget, he is 96 years old. And he is a really good person. I've been working for him for 4 years. He is my very first customer, and I'm still working for him until to this day. And he's always cheerful, happy, full of energy. He is 96 years old and still has his whole life ahead of him. He has nothing to worry about.
