Hi, my name is Alma and I'm from Visalia, CA. I have been a caregiver for more than 15 years. I have a CNA certification.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I like to help people in need. I like to interact with them and be their support when they need it.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always respect the dignity of your client. Be there for them and be nice. Give them privacy, and always help them with any of their needs.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget was Tonita. She was always nice, very talkative, and we always had a good time with her workout and with her meal preparation. She always took a good part in everything. She was very helpful and we had very, very good times together.
