Hello, my name is Sadie, and I live in Riverbank, CA and I've been a caregiver for 14 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because it was always my passion when I was a child to grow up and be able to make somebody happy, and I found this was my calling.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, first off, would be to make sure that you always respect a person's personal boundaries and to be able to treat them with dignity and kindness, and to always just be caring and loving.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is one who loved sport, and she loved to be pampered, and she loved going out to eat Mexican food. And she, at times, could be difficult to work with, but I absolutely loved her with all my heart, and I still do today. She passed away recently. But I don't know how many times, little things will come across me that remind me of her, and I have to kind of keep myself from not starting to cry but, yeah, I loved her to death.
