Hi, my name is Sue Anne and I live in Buellton, CA. I have eight years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver for a family with a mother with dementia that needed some assistance which turned into a full-time job and being able to help her with bathing, doctors' appointments, and I also became a companion for her.
What advice would you give a new caregiver?
My advice to a caregiver is to be loving and tolerant and be able to talk with respect and form a bond and trust with a patient.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
My client I will never forget is Auretta, who was the first client I started with, and she used to get so mad at family members and try and do things herself. And one day she just sat down and started laughing and asked for my assistance and said that she loved me.
