Hi, my name is Heidi. I live in Chino Hills, CA and I've been a caregiver for 17 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I started taking care of my grandmother. And since then, I feel like that was something that I wanted to do. And since then, I've been doing it for 17 years. And that inspired me.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, just give all your time to them and make sure you always listen to them and know their needs.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Sally. We had every time a great time together. But there was one special day that she had to go to a wedding. And we had a big, greatest time ever. We danced all night and she had so much fun with me. She went and told her kids. And her kids, they all gave me a call just letting me know that they were so thankful that I took her mom to that wedding. She had the greatest time dancing with me. So her kids were so happy and grateful for me to do that for their mom. That made my day, just to hear that her kids say that. That was a special day for me.
