Hi, my name is Sara. I live in Los Angeles, CA and I have 12 years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I have all the time for myself. Somebody can take care of you, that's me, the same way that I do.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be take care of patients the same way that you'll do to yourself.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is this one client because the first time that he see me, he was so happy and then he was smiling. Then a couple hours later he started to laugh and was so happy. He asked me to prepare his food and that time he asked me for shower and then I prepared his shower. I gave to him the very good sponge body shower and then the water, that was nice and warm. He felt so happy with that. Then as soon as I'm finished giving him shower, he asked me to put cream on his body and I did. Later on, he asked for a nice warm sheet and then I put it on him as he laid down to bed. Ten minutes later, he was asleep.
