Hello! My name is Lorenda. I live in Menifee, CA and I've been caregiving for seven years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I currently work in a pharmacy setting, as a pharmacy technician and I got some of my clients through the pharmacy.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be receptive to the client because they all have different personalities, and you never know what you're going to come up against when you're taking care of someone, especially when they have medical issues.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is one of my clients that I've had in the past. Her name is Anne, and she had multiple sclerosis and lots of health issues, but she was a nice lady, very nice lady. Had some good times with her at home.
