My name is Sharon. I live in Fresno, CA and I have 10 plus years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I have a lot of compassion in caring for other people, and it's a perfect profession for me to be able to love people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver would be, treat the patient as you would like to be treated if you were in their situation. Always have plenty of patience and understanding for what the other person is going for.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
Client I would never forget is Randy. Randy was a quadraplegic. He taught me to live life to the fullest and spend every day doing more than you think you can and always strive for more. That compassion goes a long way towards healing that person who is injured. We became best friends.
