Hi, my name is Roxanne, and I live in Oakdale, CA. I've been a caregiver for one year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my dear mother had injured herself, and I had to help with all of her personal and daily duties. She is well again and has now to take care of herself. And I would like to do the same for others.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to practice patient. Listen, observe, and be patient with the person that you're giving care to.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Gary. He was just easy to be around. He had some interesting stories. And he made me laugh.
