Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
Hi, my name is Arlina, currently living in Milpitas, California. I have five years experience as a caregiver. People who inspired me as a caregiver was my mom, because of her situation. Anyway, she passed away. I do like helping other people, helping activities of daily living, to make it easier for them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client close to my heart is Mr. Evans. I'm enjoying work with his family and, until now, we still have communication. The family loves me and trusts me.
What piece of advice would you give to a new caregiver?
What is your proudest moment as a caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be taking care of yourself while caring for your client, and be patient.
What are your strengths as a caregiver?
What I enjoy as a caregiver is taking care of clients. We do walking, watching TV, listening to the radio, and I'm not also a caregiver, I just do the light housekeeping.
My proudest moment as a caregiver is to see smiles on my patients after meeting their needs.
