Hi, my name is Stephanie. I live in Oceano, CA and I have 7 years experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because it had always been on my heart as a person. I have always been a caregiver at heart through just friends and family and it was just natural for me to become a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to make sure that this is what your passion is. This isn't just a job. We don't become caregivers just because it's a job and we get paid for it. We become caregivers because it's truly our passion and we have hearts of compassion.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is the first client I ever had, Cathy. I showed up at her house to train, and her caregiver did not show up, so I was unable to be trained by caregivers. So Cathy herself trained me, and it was an incredible experience, and we are still really good friends to this very day, and that was approximately almost 10 years ago.
