Hi, my name is Leah and I live in Chino, CA. I've been a caregiver for 10 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mother had MS and I helped my grandmother take care of her. Then as my grandmother got elderly, I also took care of her as well.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to just be patient, to be kind and to always treat your client with dignity and respect.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A patient I will never forget is Patty. She reminded me a lot of my grandmother, she was a very sweet lady and I did a lot of things for her. I enjoyed working with her. It was really hard once she got sicker and she had to go through a facility. It was just really hard to say bye to her because I missed her and I really enjoyed working for her and her family, so I will always remember her and she will always be missed.
