Hi, my name is Kirandeep. I live in Fresno, CA and I've been caregiver for two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I wanted to become caregiver because I used to take care of my grandma and my grandpa before they passed away. So that's what inspired me to provide my care for the elderly and assist them with all their needs.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver would be patience. I think patience is something that we need when you work as a caregiver and working with elderly, not to rush them to do their daily activities and also politeness, you need to be polite. That would be what I would say that's most important for this job that a caregiver needs, is patient and politeness.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I would never forget, it was a female client I took care of. Her name was Julia. She was very sweet and then I assisted her with the walking, her daily needs such as coffee. She loved getting dressed up and she loved to do new hairstyles, so every time I would do a hairstyle on her, she'd get so happy. Also, she loved putting on different nail polishes every week, so I would paint her nails. She loved receiving compliments and she would also give me compliments. She was really sweet and I would never forget her.
