Hi, my name is Lorena. I live in San Leandro, CA and I've been a caregiver for 1 year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because it comes naturally to me. I enjoy providing care for people of different ages. It gives me great satisfaction to think that I am help to someone else.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is that she has to have love for the person, she has to have compassion, she has to put herself in their situation, and she has to have a lot of patience and care for the other people.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is Gloria. I just remember her smiling everytime I would do activities that she liked and do things that she wanted me to do for her.
