Hi! My name is Raven. I live in Covina, CA and I've been a caregiver for four years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of a loved one. My grandmother, she had a stroke in 2009. And I really just got my caregiving experience dealing with my grandmother.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be safety first, then love and compassion. And pay very close attention to the detail of the client.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Dr. Lim. He was just a joy to work with. He suffered from dementia. He just passed away in December 2015. And I was his daily live-in caregiver. And even though that he suffered from dementia, he would recognize the people that was around him daily. And he would kind of recognize his schedule every day throughout the week. And he was just a very amazing man. Him and his wife were just very lovely people. And yeah, I will never forget Dr. Lim. He was a very, very nice client to work with.
