Hi, my name is Trathen. I live in Scottsdale, AZ and I've been a caregiver for over 11 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I'm a very loving, caring person. And I'm happy to help people with disabilities or elderly people that need help and stuff. I've always just known I've been a good caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, you have to be a very caring, loving, compassionate person. You want to be able to help people that need help. People with disabilities and elderly people and stuff that need your assistance.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A memorable time with a client, I would say when I was working with a client I became really close friends with and he was a very sweet guy. And I was happy that I got close to him and we were friends.
