Hi, my name is Sherle. I live in Ventura, CA. And I have been a caregiver for at least eight years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my mother, my husband's mother, and my daughter. And I enjoy the work. I enjoy taking care of people, and I just love to care and the companionship that I can give. And it's just something I love doing.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to show patience, show love, be a good listener, and to make the environment as stress-free as possible.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is a little lady that was 93 years old. And she loved to give others what I call the bird when she disagrees with them. She was a feisty thing. And I loved her to death. And I don't think I'll ever forget her.
