Hi, my name is Ana. I live in Pittsburg, CA and I have been a caregiver for 12 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandmother was hospitalized. When she came back home, there was no one to stay with her so the family wanted me to stay with her. And I stayed with her. She was paralyzed one side and not moving for seven years.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to help others heal and be happy.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Cecilia. She's a very warm-hearted lady. She is very sweet and loving. Just a very nice lady.
