Hi. My name is Sonia. I live in Los Angeles, CA and I have 3 years of caregiving experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I decided to become a caregiver because I wanted to get down the basics of nursing which led me to pursue my CNA license and at the moment I am going for my ON license.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to most importantly know your residents. Their likes, their dislikes, their needs, what the family is expecting and most importantly care for them as if they were a loved one of their own.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I will never forget will be Karen. I was her one on one and we would have such long, great talks and she would give me grandmotherly advice.
