Hi, my name is Mereane. I live in Pittsburgh, CA and I have six years of being a caregiver.
How did you get into being a caregiver?
I became a caregiver because my grandmother, she didn't have nobody to care for her and she didn't want to go to any elderly home. So I took care of her for six years.
What advice would you give a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to have patience, and to have a positive attitude, and to be yourself.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is Nora. She makes me laugh and I make her laugh all the time. Every time she would do something she'd say, "Remember this, remember this?" And especially our oral reading because she loves when I read to her
