Hi, I'm Joan. I live in Sacramento,CA and I've been a caregiver for four years now.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I have a passion in helping, especially with elderly people, I just want to help them with whatever I can give and I know that it's fun to be with them. Usually, I learn a lot from them.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to have patience, compassion, passion and dedication in what they do. Elderly people need to have a companion to be with them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is Betty. She has Alzheimer's, she's a very nice and loving person. She loves to talk and share her life experiences. She also has bad moment but even with that, she's a lovable person and I love her.
