Hi, my name is Yvette. I live in Oxnard, CA and I've been a caregiver for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver when my grandmother got sick, and I realized how much I did enjoy helping and caring for someone and teaching them new things and how to live a happy life.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be patient, to know that every day is a new day. And you're going to learn things just as much as they're going to learn from you.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is a woman I have worked with for about a year now. And she is so happy, so appreciative, and makes me want to go to work, just by her personality and her love for me as well.
