Hi, my name is LaVangelia. I live in Oakland, CA and I've been a caregiver for 2 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I had a disabled sister and I helped take care of her. Then I started helping with my grandparents and then I just wanted to do it afterward.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, have respect, have patience, and loyalty.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client, Candice, is the best time I remember. We were sitting down talking and going down memory lane and the smile that comes upon her face when she glows is just overwhelming. I'll always remember.
