Hi, my name is Beatriz. I live in Sunland, CA and I have nursing experience for five years plus.
How did you get into caregiving?
I become a caregiver by accident, and I find out that helping others fulfilled me completely. I'm a mom, a grandmother, but then when I went to school with my friend, it was different. Exciting. I mean, helping others is great.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to have compassion for the elderly and the sick. To work with your heart. Be nice to others. They need you. Maybe one day in the future, we're going to be on the other side, and I would love to see that someone is treating me with respect. Respect that every single person, human being, deserve.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is not just one. It's several. This lady, she had a lot of hate in her heart still into those years, but I accomplished to become her caregiver and friend. And she realized after all that other people or other races were not that bad as she thought we were. Like I said, she's not the only one. I have another family in Pasadena. I have another family in Calabasas, California also. It's amazing. I mean, I don't know. I just love what I do.
