Hi, my name is Laney. I live in Bay Point, and I've been a caregiver for ten years.How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mother worked in nursing homes, and she also did in-home care. So I got my training from my mother.What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
I would tell a new caregiver to learn as much as you can about the patient - their wants and their needs - to show compassion and kindness, and just get to know your client.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Lonnie. She was very kind. She was very funny. She was very appreciative of the work that I did in her home and for her. I just enjoyed every day at work because we laughed, we had a great day, and we got things accomplished.
