About

Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
My name is Nora and I live in Oakland, California three blocks from the Lake Merritt the beautiful lake. And I started being a caregiver in the year 2000. I got into caregiving because my late husband, Warren Higgins, was diagnosed with general cancer and his doctor asked me to fill a form because I had to give away my business I had at that time in Moraga and dedicate more hours to be with Warren - my husband. That's how I started.  I've been a caregiver for 15 years and I have been trained by the government from the social services for aging people in Oakland and I have a special certificates in Alzheimer's and dementia. I took that course for six consecutive months every single day, four hours a day.

Who is one of your most memorable clients?  
My two favorite clients were Mr. Batkin and Maggie. She was an alcoholic and I took care of her for two and a half years. When we started she was drinking three bottles of sauvignon blanc every day, not eating. When I left her she was only taking one-third of a bottle a day.

What's an important quality a caregiver should have?
I think the most important thing that had made me a little successful in this kind of job is that I put all my heart and my love to the clients. My goal is for them to feel secure, comfortable, and feel that they are in control of their lives.
