My name is Penny Camburn. I live in Morgan Hill and I've been working as a caregiver on and off for at least eight years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because when my children were all grown I wanted to have some means to keep busy.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always stay calm and positive and to always listen to the needs of the person that you're caring for.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is a lady who I started working with when she was in her mid-80s. She had Alzheimer's, but even though she suffered from this, she had an amazing outlook on life. She had a tremendous sense of humor and just about every day she would make me laugh in some way.
