Hi, my name is Heather. I live in Hemet, CA and I've been caregiving for 2 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love to help people. And all I want to do is help. I don't mind working long hours. I don't mind working nights. I just want to help. I want to be able to give what I can.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, patience and unconditional love. It's hard sometimes but, really, the goal is to make sure that the person you're caring for is taken care of within reason if you understand. And caring for another is definitely a passion of mine. I'm obsessed with caring for others.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is my first client. We had a lot of fun. It turned out to be a hostile environment because he refused to let me clean but we did. We had a lot of fun. We watched a lot of old movies. I got to help him with certain banking information. I didn't touch his money but thanks to me he now has the savings. I helped him to be able to save money as well as I was able to help him to know that he was cared about.
