Hi, my name is Shabrea. I live in Long Beach, CA and I've been a caregiver for one year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love helping people. I worked in hospitals for years. I also became a caregiver for one of my family members and my Mom. I love helping people in general.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver would be to listen to your patient, to pay attention to what they're saying to you, to always take heed to what's going on, and pay attention to your environment.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is one of my family members, and I needed to feed him. I needed to cook for him. I needed to take him to doctor's appointments. I also needed to keep up with the things that was going on that he needed help with. So, that's my story.
