Hi, my name is Mary Jane. I live in Long Beach, CA. I've been a caregiver for almost two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my loved ones, and I worked with the other senior health care in another facility and I also worked as a childcare assistant in a childcare environment.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be compassionate, caring, loving, respectful, patience, and be on time with your given schedule.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Shanine. She is kind, funny, she always makes sure that I'm okay and I'm doing well every day in my job. We always talk about her life, her dancing, fitness regimen, motivational inspirational words every day. She loves my cooking, especially the healthy stuff. I won't forget her because every time we talk, she always advises me with positive stuff. She always remind me about my grandmother and my mother. I always want to work with her everyday. I miss her because she means so much to me. I won't forget her.
