Hi, my name is Lorene. I live in Kingsburg, CA and I have two years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my grandmother and my grandfather. My grandmother was bedridden since I was ten-years-old and I helped care for her all of my life and my elder deserved the most respect and honest care they can possibly receive.
What advice would you give a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be patient and to relax, that the clients are probably just as nervous as the new caregiver is.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Joy. I will never forget her ability to smile through all the disabilities and health issues the woman had.
