Hi, my name is Letia, I live in Oakland, CA and I have been a caregiver for 5 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver when my grandmother sat me down and talked to me and told me that she was getting really sick. So I stopped working to take care of her.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to have patience, time and talk to your client.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
My most memorable clients will always be my step-mother who had cancer. We spent a lot of time, we talked a lot. My second one would be my sister who had cancer. I stopped working to go down and take care of her. We had a great time and I miss them both.
