Hi, my name is Alcira. I live in the city of El Monte, CA and I've been a caregiver for 5 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver first for my mom and then for my sister. I started working as a caregiver in retirement homes and I enjoyed it. I like to care for elderly people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, have patience, know your patient's need, be friendly and pay attention to them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Theresa. She was a very outgoing person, very kind, very sweet, never complained. She was like a mother to me. She loved to enjoy time together.
