Hi, my name is Timina and I live in Visalia, CA. I have been a caregiver for 10 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my mother. She was a traveling RN who travelled all over California and Hawaii, so I am really into this kind of work.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is the money that you get paid for being a caregiver doesn't mean nothing unless your work as a caregiver fulfills your duties as a caregiver.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I would never forget would be Margie. Margie is a lovely lady and she's in her elderly years. However, every time I see her, I always give her a hug and then she starts holding my hand. She starts kissing my hand and just likes that affectionate hug. I really enjoy her company. She's fun and she's a happy person, yet, she has her down days, but that's okay. We can manage that.
