Hi! My name is Rejane. I live in Palmdale, CA and I have a year experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of a loved one, my dad, who had a Parkinson's disease. And I'm already in the medical field. I am a certified medical assistant.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, always be patient, love what you do, and see the client or the patient as one of your family. Very important that you see the whole person, not just the job but a person.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Miss Bobbie. Bobbie is 92 years old. She can't move, she can't walk, but she always had a great spirit. I was preparing everything for her, caring for her was a pleasure because she would always cheer me up. She was always in good spirit.
