Hi, my name is Molly. I have been a caregiver for one year and I live in Lake Forest, CA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandma got sick and I watched how my mom took care of her, and I really liked and got motivated by that. I'm also going to school for social work because I want to help.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, be patient because people might not learn as fast or might not do some things as fast as you want. But as long as you're patient, it will get done.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Monita. She suffers from dementia so she's always super forgetful. Still, she's just the sweetest lady. She used to be a preschool teacher. She just tells me stories about the past and how the kids are like little demons, yet she loved her job. Even though she suffers from dementia, she's still so, so nice.
