Hi, my name is Vanessa. I live in Ventura, CA and I've been a caregiver for 4 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandfather got sick and that made me want to care for others.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to respect the elderly and educate yourself. Learn as much as you can about your patient.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is this man who, when I had to do the overnight shifts before, he would pour his heart out and tell us what he did for love. He would also give me bits of advice before he passed away.
