Hi, my name is Susan. I live in Oakley, CA. I've been a caregiver for seven years, a certified nurse assistant for three.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my grandmother. I was inspired by her after her passing of how much care that I know she needed but was too stubborn to ask for.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to have a lot of patience and to slow down your routine with the patient or the client.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I would never forget is John, Eva. I have several. Their smile, their laughter, their stories of their childhood were very fond and dear to me. I'll never forget.
