Hi, my name is Sarah. I live in Clovis, CA and I've been a caregiver for 10 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because when I was little my mom was a caregiver and she turned me on to it because she would always come home with a smile on her face. Then when I became a caregiver I loved putting smiles on the people that I was taking care of. I just love it.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be that when they are cranky and don't want to do something that you want them to do, take your time and just be calm with them. And it will come eventually.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is a client that I had. Her name was Alice, and she had Alzheimer's. I would wear a sweater and it had an angel on it and she would always call me Angel because of that sweater. That is why I will never forget her.
