Hi, my name is Jasmin. I stay in Stockton, CA and I have 2 years of experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because when I was younger, I always had to help my grandmother with things that she needed help with, like taking her to the doctors and just helping her with things that she needed help with. And that's what made me want to help others with what they have, anything they need to be helped with. So that's the reason why I became a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to always be kind and be understanding to certain people needs. If they need assistance, just try to be very friendly even if you're not in the quite the mood. Just think about it that they need your help and that they can't do it on their own. So just try to be very helpful and there for others.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Susan. She was just always just a funny, energetic person. Every time I came in for work, she was just always so happy to see me. And I remember the times when she would just like say, "Hey, lady," like we were really good friends. That's one person that I will never forget and that she always made me feel very welcome and made my job very easy, and just made me love to do what I did best when I'm being a caregiver.
