Hi, my name is Kristina and I live in Burbank, CA I have experience for caregiver for 2 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I like to help people. People with disabilities, older people as well, for the children. I used to work as a volunteer in my country where I'm from, from Georgia. I used to see children with disabilities. Also for older age.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be kind, to be helpful, for the person needing to walk to and to give help, to be positive, be patient, and love the person who next to.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I will never forget, the name was George. He was 75 years old and he had paranoia. It was very hard to work with him but this experience became for me a really, really big, something big and very useful for my life. We became friends and it was a great experience that I'll never forget in my life with this person.
