Hi, my name is Karen. I live in Los Angeles, CA and I've been a caregiver for thee and a half years. 

How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of an experience that I had in my family. After they passed away, I decided I want to do something to help others, and that's what led me to become a caregiver. And I realized that dementia is one of the hardest diseases. So, I love working with patients that have dementia, and bringing the best out of them. And I feel like they have made me become a better person.

What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, just have patience. It takes time to get to know a resident. And it takes a lot to be able to bond with them in the beginning, but after that, it would be easy. You just have to work as a team with the resident or with the family members. 

Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is this lady I met when I was working at Sobrado three and a half years ago. She was one of my first residents, and she was a teacher. So, every time we would try to get her to do something, she thought she was talking to her students. I feel that I had a connection with her, and I always tried to help her out or her family members. And we had a special bond, she told me things that made me laugh. When she passed away, it hit me hard, because I won't be able to see her ever again.
