Hi, my name is Pamela. I have over two years of caregiving experience and I live in Mariposa, CA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver at the age of 16 with in home health services through the county in Mariposa, California. I always liked it and enjoyed it. Again, had a son who had Spina Bifida, and I learned a lot more medical terms and medical things to do.
What advice would you give to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver to have much patience, support your client as much as you can with letting them have as much digninty, and feel safe, and just making them feel comfortable.
Who is one your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is a client that remembers me, or after talking for awhile will remember me a bit, and be happy to see me - beside that I'm there - be comfortable with me and know that I honestly care for them and want them to be safe, happy, and content, and have all their needs met.
