Hi. My name is Janelle. I live in Harbor City, CA and I have been a caregiver for 12 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I went into nursing school and decided that caregiving enriches the lives of one in their own environment and at home.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be is to have patience and communicate with the client, and make sure at the end of each shift, they are satisfied and happy.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is a lady by the name of Paulie, a 103-year-old lady, who was full of life and wisdom. At each shift, she was full of humor. And she always told me whenever I left, "You belong to me," which I thought to be very heart-warming.
