Hi. My name is Michelle. I live in Hayward, CA, and I am a caregiver for 15 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my sick father, who I had experience caring for when I was in fourth grade.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver would be be compassionate, caring, and treat their patient as their family or treat them the way they wanted to be treated.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I would never forget is Bill. He's very smart, intelligent for his age. He had a pretty bad disease, but he try not to focus on that. Instead, he's living a life that he said he'd never had before.
