Hello, my name is Kirby. I live in Ceres, CA and I've been a caregiver for seven years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mother was dying of cancer, and we took care of her for the longest time before she passed. And then I decided that's what I wanted to do, and I've been doing that for seven years now.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be honest, caring, kind, and very thoughtful. Consider the patients at all times.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Candy. She was a paraplegic, and she was such a sweetheart, but I was basically her hands and legs. So, I remember her the most being so happy when I would do something over and above what needed to be done.
