Hi, my name is Lisa. I live in Westminster, CA and I have been a caregiver for a little over two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I enjoy working with seniors. I have a medical experience in the medical field. I like to help seniors to make their lives better so they can enjoy their life at home.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, be a good listener and ask questions. And try to follow directions so the senior is served in the way that they like to be served.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Rosaline. She had several challenges and needed a lot of care, but she was always very happy to give very detailed instruction. This helped me tremendously in becoming a good caregiver. She enjoyed going out for shopping and she also enjoyed trying new foods. I always greeted her with a smile and she really liked that.
