Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
What type of clients have you cared for?
My name is Juanita Easley. I live in Oakland and I have been a caregiver for over 30 years. I became a caregiver because my mom was a caregiver. I enjoy helping people.
I have worked with people with dementia, people that needed help out of their bed with the hoyer lift, I have given people showers, and I have fed people. I have done multiple things and I enjoy doing them all. I have worked with many different people under different circumstances. I don't have a problem doing the things that need to be done for each and every person in their own individual way.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I worked with a young lady for about six years and took care of her very well. We became very close. I actually used to invite her over the my house for the holidays. She would come over for Christmas and Thanksgiving and share the holidays with my family.
