Hi, my name is Amalia and I've been working as a caregiver three years, and I live in Antioch, CA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I've been working as a caregiver because I feel like love, compassion and respect. All my life I've been working, since I start working, I've been working in a hospital and that's when I learned so much in there, and I know the older people, they need so much help.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
I like to help older people. I try to make them happy. I try to sing. I love to whistle and they like it. I encourage them to be happy and to walk. And encourage them to do things they like.
