Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
My name is Araceliand they call me Celli. I live in San Bruno and I've been a caregiver since 1987. What interests me in taking care of old people is when my husband was diagnosed with COPD and we have to take care of him and so with my mom who have hypertension. And that makes me interested in taking up nursing and adjusting to people and taking care of them. I
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
've been with my clients, these clients of mine for two years. I take care of him because she has COPD and I like taking care of her. She is very quiet and very patient, and he talk a little but you can adjust to him and is very kind, and the family is very kind to me too.
What have you learned as a caregiver?
I've learned as a caregiver I met different kinds of people, their different culture, their different habits of eating, the way they cook, and the way they handle the family and living with them with their adjustment. I've been doing this for a long time, and I want to learn more, and I want to be educated. And I want to meet all different kinds of clients and different kinds of people that will treat me the same as they treat their family.
