Hi, my name is Petra. I live in Hayward, CA and I have 10 years experience to do caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I've been a caregiver because I really like working with senior people and help them on a daily basis. They need it like personal care, administer medication, meals, transportation, cleaning, transferring different things they request.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to be a caregiver is to help them to provide care to them and be there when they need you.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
My last client was in Palo Alto and she has Alzheimer's and dementia and you know what happened? When I was working with her, she was like a little baby, a little angel. She's like a little baby, a little grown baby, and she let me do things to her - when I sing to her and she's so calm. When I stay there, she feels so calm. When I'm there, she feels secured with me. This is my big story that I remember, about my last client that passed away.
