Hi, my name is Terrie. I live in Lemon Grove, CA and I have 20 years worth of experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregive because my grandmother got sick, She went to the hospital and when she came home, I started to take care of her so that's why I became a caregiver and I'm a caregiver as of today.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to another caregiver is to be patient with your client and whatever your client need, you need to be there for your client at all times and make sure you take care of them very well as you would take care of one of your loved ones.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client that I would never forget, his name was Becker. He would love to go out to the beach, he would love to go out shopping, he just loved to be out in the great environment at all times, he loved to watch TV, he loved to play music and he was the one of the greatest guys that I ever met on my job as being a caregiver, I really liked him and he was very funny.
