Hi, my name is Reynalda. I live in Fresno, CA. I have eight years of caregiving experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my sister-in-law gave me the opportunity to work at an assisted living facility with her. She's always known that I've enjoyed helping others, especially older people, seniors, or people that have dementia and Alzheimer's.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to get to know your residents, know what they want, such as their needs.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Roy. He would tell me stories when he was in the war. He would tell other caregivers they need to learn how to take care of him as I did, because he had his own way of certain things done with him.
