Hi, my name is Regina. I live in San Diego, CA and I have been a caregiver for the past five years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of a close family member who had a trauma. I had taken care of him for a long time until he was able to go into a family care center.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to always seek information that concerns the client's needs. And any other information regarding the care for him can always be found online and through videos or always go and take a class.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Wally. He is 79. And he's struggling but he's still sticking around and keeping up and making it easier for a caregiver. But he's really strong-minded.
