Hi, my name is Traci. I live in Huntington Beach,CA and I've been a caregiver for five years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I had a few people in my life that needed to be cared for including grandparents. I wish I was there to be able to take care of them and it's just something very special that I like to do.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a caregiver would be; be friendly, loving, hopeful and surrounded just by profession.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Jean. She had pancreatic cancer. I was her friend before I was her caregiver and I had just good experience in her later life. I made sure she was very happy and had friends around her. I just will never forget that one.
