Hi, my name is Kellie. I live in Berkeley, CA and I've been a care provider for four years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a care provider because my grandfather got sick, and I came to help him out, and watching him through that whole ordeal made me grow a greater compassion for people in need of healthcare.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new care provider would be to have patience.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Desiree. The smile she had every time I would come in the door in the morning, she would be waiting for me, and her smile just made my day. I was happy to see that. My assistance put a smile on her face and made her have a great day.
