Hello. My name is Melissa. I live in Los Angeles, CA and I have 3 years of experience as a CNA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I was always interested in helping others with their cases since as far back I can remember. I've been in health and science academy since high school. Been doing CNA right out of high school. I love what I do.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be compassionate about what you do and never lose your patience.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I will never forget would be Lula, who was born with a developmental disability. She always tries her best to help, laugh, and be prayerful, and she never stops trying to help herself. She's very loving and kind, just the one I completely fell in love with taking care of.
