Hi my name is Lorri. I live in New Hall, CA, and I have been a caregiver for 14 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver, because I enjoy working with seniors, and elderly, and people with disabilities. And I'm able to help them with their daily activities and make sure they're safe, and happy, and healthy with all their daily activities.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to be patient, kind, and understanding, because some of the seniors are not capable of doing their daily needs by themselves. So they do need stability, and understanding, and again, patience.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is a lady I cared for for over ten years. She was mobile. She was loving and she just became a part of my life as family. And helping her with different needs in her life, I was able to get so close to her to know when she was not feeling well or her sugar was low-- just became very close to her and her family as well.
