Hi, my name is Jewelene. I live in Fresno, CA. I have been a caregiver for five years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I like caring for the elderly. I became a caregiver after my little sister got sick, so that's what inspired me more.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, it's something that you have, something that you would really want to do. And you should be able to have in your heart to help others, and to help the elderly to get up on their feet, and to help them be more independent.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget her name is Carol. She was a very independent person, and when she lost her independency, she she didn't take that well, so she began to start just not really caring about herself, and she began to go down. But when I met her, and she got to know me, I inspired her and motivated her to want to live.
