Hi, my name is Alisi. I live in San Bruno, CA and I have nine years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love taking care of the elderly. I have fun with them and I love taking care all the people and I have experience taking care of them.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to new caregiver is to love and take good care of them, fill them with love and respect, respect their property. Try to find out what they love to eat, what they love to do every day and what they don't like, and follow the advice from the doctor to do their daily activities like walking, exercising, and consider their family of what they want you to do with their elderly.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I'll never forget is Yvonne. I used to take care of her for seven years and she was a very loving and nice lady. She loved to talk about her husband, her children and her grandchildren and she loved to play cards. We would always sing together and we would always go out. She loved to go out and meet her friends and family. And she loved to go to the park and take a walk, exercise. The thing that I really love about was when we sing and do the Hawaiian hula together.
