Hi, I'm Nancy I live in Sacramento, CA and I have 3 years of caregiving experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I wanted to go to school for psychology and eventually got married and also family therapist, hopefully working with troubled youth and the elderly community.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be patient, be understanding and be compassionate.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget would be Jennifer. She was the last client that I worked with. And I really liked working with her just because she was really nice, very sweet. I would talk to her on the phone for hours, even on days I wasn't working with her. She would always send me letters and even to this day, she continues to send me really letters and she encourages me to go to college and pursure becoming a therapist eventually.
