Hi, my name is Susan. I live in Elk Grove, CA and I've been a caregiver for 30 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because after housekeeping for the elderly, I discovered the love I have for caring for the elderly.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to patiently listen to their patients and to provide them with the best they can in meeting their needs.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Leora. She was a retired school teacher and she enjoyed telling me her stories about when she was a teacher. Some were funny and some were very heart-warming.
