Hi, my name is Mickaylee. I live in Concord, CA and I have 10 years experience taking care of seniors.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because both my parents became ill. And I felt that I was the best one to take care of them full-time. I even resigned from my job, to stay at home, and take care of them.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be very, very, very positive all the time, all day long, no matter what the scenario. Because the person you're dealing with will be sometimes very ill, or at least uncomfortable physically. And that positive attitude can go a long way in making both of your days turning into an excellent experience.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is my mother because I loved her so very dearly. And I gave all that love into my care for her. There wasn't a minute that went by that I didn't give a hundred percent.
