Hi, my name is Shirley. I live in Inglewood, CA. I've been a caregiver for eight years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love working with the elderly.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver, you should be patient, be loving, have great response. Make sure you take care of your patient the best way you can.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I would never forget is Ms. S. I worked with her in Pennsylvania and she was 95 years old at the time I found her. When I started working with her, she was in a wheelchair and by the time I got through with her, she was up and walking and didn't need the wheelchair anymore.
