Hi. My name is Monique. I live in Vallejo, California, and I've been a caregiver for four years.
How did you get into caregving?
What led me to become a caregiver is caring for my grandmother with Alzheimer's, and my grandma with cancer. So that made me more motivated in helping others.
What piece of advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, be passionate, loving, caring. And treat the patients as if they were your family, and how would you want your family to be treated?
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is, her name was Annabel. And she was very, very talkative, very loving, very passionate, loved people, and always brought a smile to your face. And I always was happy to go to work to help her in whatever she needed help in.
