Hi, my name is Lucy. I live in Fresno, CA and I have approximately 8 years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I really enjoy meeting new people, especially elderly people because I was raised by grandparents and so I know what it is to be around people who can no longer do for themselves.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new care provider would be is to get to know your client. You show lot's of love, give a lot of patience and a lot of understanding and earn their trust.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Frances. When I would show up to work and her face would just light up and she would say my name and she would tell me, "I look forward to seeing you every day." and I just loved her smile, I loved hearing her stories, I loved just everything about her.
