Hi, my name is Valencia. I live in Oceanside, CA and I've been a caregiver for six years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver due to my grandmother becoming very sick and me understanding the purpose of caregivers and how people need others. And I like to help people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be understanding and try to see things from your client's perspective because we do not understand or know what they're going through.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is a female and I recently seen her before she passed. And I asked her if she remembered me after a year of not seeing me and she smiled and she said, "Yes, I do remember you." And the next day, she passed away.
