Hi, my name is Yolanda. I live in Long Beach, CA and I've been doing caregiving over seven years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my grandmother. She got sick. I was taking care of her.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver coming into the field. Make sure this is something you want to do, because it's not easy. You can enjoy it, but you make sure that this is something you want to do, which is helping other people, because it can be hard at times. But just make sure this is something you like doing.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client that I will never forget and why, because even though they went through what they went through, they still had a positive attitude and still wanted to live life.
