Hi, my name is Martha. And I live in Orange Cove, CA. And I have more than 16 years of experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I always loved to help other people, and be a companion to people, and help as much as I can.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, give them a lot of TLC, be patient and help as much as possible with their task or anything, whatever they need, and the help that they need.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is a client that I used to have that she would not allow nobody to touch her or do anything for her because she could not trust anybody. She was very verbal, abusive to anybody who gets close to her. And she would call them names after names. So they sent me. Nobody wanted to take her, so they sent me in, and she treated me the same way that she treated anybody else.
