Hello. My name is Angelina. I'm from Gilroy, CA. I've been a caregiver for a year and a half.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my father. He's been sick for a few years now. I started caregiving for him for over a year, and then I started working at a facility. He's really inspired me to help with other people and help get them better.
What advice would you give to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to treat these clients as if they were your own family, your friends. Treat them as if they were a loved one. They're people, too. They have feelings. Just make sure they're priority while you're working with them at all times.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I will never forget is Miss Kathy. I currently work with her right now. She is the sweetest. She doesn't talk, but she recognizes everyone. She has the biggest smile on her face every morning. She's this all around amazing lady. She's wonderful. I will never forget every moment I've had with her and still have with her.
