Hi, my name is Karen and I live in the city of Indio, CA. I have 10 years of experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver when I started caring for my grandmother and that got me interested in doing more caregiving for other people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a caregiver would be always write down your note, what you do, and in case of an emergency, immediately call 911 and thereafter family members if you know of any or if you work for an agency.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client that I most remember is Ms. Beverly. She enjoyed me walking her dog every morning, giving her coffee and her biscotti, she'd tell me that I was a very quiet worker and seemed very pleased with me.
