Hi, my name is Michelle. I live Hayward, CA and I have about a year experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I had a friend at 82 years old that I really care for and took care of him before he passed away, so that's my experience.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver will be, ask them about their feelings, how you can help them, and what can you do. Anything I can do, just let me know.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
Yes, a memorable time with Mr. Ben, we would laugh because he would always try to give me instruction about my education, family, boyfriend. Stuff that I would laugh because he would tell me about his life with his wife and how good of a person he was taking care of her when she was going through cancer and would always ask me about my relationship with my boyfriend. Things like that, that would just feel like he care about my feelings
