Hi, my name is Albert. I live in Gilroy and I have been a caregiver and CNA for 4 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because growing up I took care of my 4 grandparents for a long time. I get much joy from taking care of people - helping them - being a friend to them; seeing them improve brings me joy.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
Create a relationship that will gain trust, remain professional and learn to love from your heart.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I will never forget George. He trusted me because he said I was attentive and I was patient. He could express himself to me freely. He also said I have a sense of humor and that when I am working with him, he feels secure.
