Hello, my name is Lanaedria. I live in Sacramento, CA and I've been a caregiver for five years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I believe that everyone deserves to be spoken for, and I love to advocate for those who cannot advocate for themselves. I was inspired by my parents to become a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always have patience and always keep your priorities focused on your client's confidentiality and security.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Mary Beth. Mary Beth was an amazing client to me. She always had stories of words of wisdom, and every single story was completely different. With her, she always reminded me to never give up in life no matter how many obstacles you have, always figure out ways to overcome them because there's always something greater on the other side. I will never forget that client, Mary Beth.
