Hi, my name is Sarah. I have been a caregiver for 20 years, I live in Richmond, CA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love helping people. I love taking care of people. Ever since I was 5 years old, I have liked caring for people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
Treat each client like you would your family - your loved one. Don't be afraid if people disagree and show them that you care.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I will never forget Elizabeth because even though she had moderate Dementia, she was always nice and kind to me. Even with Alzheimer's she encouraged me, she took a personal interest in and I appreciate that.
