Hi my name is Kari. I live in West Sacramento,CA and I have five years experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my two sisters have a learning and I wanted to make it so that someone was there to take care of them.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to the caregivers is to stick with it. Caregiving is a great experience and it fills you with just a lot of joy and kindness, being around other people.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client that I'll never forget is Donna. She was just a very kind-hearted person. She used to be a nurse, and she just always had the biggest smile in the world. So no matter how I was feeling when I came to work, I would see her and she would just light up my world. That day, she would just make me feel so good. Anything that was stressful, all I had to do was look at her smile, and it meant the world to me.
