Hi. My name is Alisi. I live in Los Altos,CA and I have 20 years of experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I have relatives that need help, and I take care of grandparents. And after that, I just fall in love with elderly care, and I make up my mind just what I want to do. And it's been over 30-something years, and I love to continue.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver would be you have to always make sure you give them the love that they need. Then they feel like home, and they feel happy when you are around them. You make sure they have things, and you do what they need you to do to help them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I never forgot is Gabe. I've been taking care of him almost seven years. He was a very sweet, loving person that I ever met. And even though he passed away, I always remember just how much I care about him.
