Hi, my name is Jelision. I live in Palmdale, CA and I've been a caregiver for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I'm a current student in a nursing program and I've always wanted to give back to the community.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, gain some patience. It's always good to be calm and be collected with the patient and always be helpful. Try not to get too frustrated with the patient.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I would never forget would be Joe. He was always happy. Even though he was unable to move around on his own, he was always so dependent and he always had a smile on his face regardless of his issues.
