Hi, my name is Sue. I live in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA and I have been a caregiver for 14 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my mom. She had Alzheimer's back in the 80s and when I saw her the way she was acting, it was just devastating, and I was helping her day and night. After she passed away, I just loved to help people in that, especially in people that have dementia or Alzheimer's.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to other caregivers would be just be yourself and do the best you can and just do it with love, honesty, caring, and that's how I take care of the people that I took care in the past.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is a client that talked, smiled, how made me laugh.
