Hi, my name is Jenny, and I live in San Jose, CA. And I've been a caregiver for five years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandfather was ill. So, I went to school for CNA, and worked as a CNA at Mt. Pleasant Nursing Center. And I've had three years experience from there.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be caring, understanding, and active listening.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Ashley. She was great, funny, and always had a smile on her face even though she couldn't help herself with her daily activities.
