Hi. My name is Harris. I live in Oakland, CA and I have been a caregiver for 3 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver to take care of my mom plus my grandmother. Also because of my grandma.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be is to do stress reduction like this: to close your eyes, balance your wisdom, and breathe calmly.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I'll never forget is a client that didn't want me to at first come into their house, but I gradually talked to them, eased the moment, and eventually they let me in. But also, I gained their trust by helping them with their art and we did a lot of art together. That's how he opened up to me.
