Hi, my name is Yvonne. I live in Lemon Cove, CA, and I have been a caregiver for seven years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I feel good making a difference in someone's life. My grandmother was a caregiver, and she took me under her wing when I was little, and I just loved it from that time on.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to never force anybody to do anything they do not want to do. Just try to find some other way around it.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Renee. She made me feel like I was her family. Her family was not as much around as me.
