Hi, my name's Kaylee. I currently live in Wildomar, CA and I have a little over a year experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my grandma. She's not in the best of health, so lately I've been taking care of her.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be never treat your client as a patient or someone in need. Treat them as either a family member or a close friend, that really makes them feel uncomfortable if you're like there because they need help, More of you're just there to assist them here and there. That would be my best advice.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I'll never forget would be Virgil. He was a sweet old man that I used to care for and I was in the kitchen one time and he came in and tapped me on the shoulder, wanted me to watch a favorite part of his show with him and a movie and he had to tell me all about it. I ended up sitting there watching the rest of it with him. It was a good experience.
