Hi, my name is Alba. I live in Buda, Texas. I've been a caregiver for two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandparents got involved in assisted living years back. I was very sad, and I was trying to do a better thing. And just getting to know these people, it was just an amazing experience, so I decided to get more involved in this field
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be put yourself into their situation. How would you feel, for example the situation they're in. So it's pretty much that.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Eva, she was the first. She was fun, but other times she would get very angry. I would find a way to calm her down. I was doing pretty much the things she needed. She had dementia, but when she was calm, she was the most sweetest person ever.
