Hi, my name is Portia. I live in Murrieta, CA and I have been a caregiver for five years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I started taking care of my grandparents before their passing, and I just fell in love with caring for people, and taking care of others.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, be patient, be kind, be understanding, be loving, and be attentive to others' needs.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Ms. Jackie. She was the most loving person. Any time you came into her home, she always wanted to see everybody first, and she was this very kind lady, very easy to work with, very patient, and just kind hearted.
