Hi! My name is Irene. I live in Carlsbad and I've been a caregiver for seven years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I had elderly neighbors who needed help. I enjoyed very much helping them and I will continue to help others as needed.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be kind, patient and to meet their needs, whatever that may be, with a joyful attitude and always be interested in their conversation and keeping them safe.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Gloria. We just became good friends. Her smiling face just lit up a room and it made my heart joyful to serve her. Loved her, served her for four years and every day was a great experience with her.
