Hi! My name is Marie. I live in Carpinteria, California. I have been a caregiver for 15 to 20 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver for a loved one, which was my father. He had muscular dystrophy, and I took care of him when I was younger. And that is what I've always, have been doing.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My new advice for a new caregiver would be, always be patient. Always treat the patient with respect.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is from Pennsylvania. A wonderful, wonderful man that I just helped and took care of.
