Hi my name is Beleyou. I lived in San Jose, CA. I have been in caregiving for one year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I like to help older people because they don't know anything. They are old people. I want to help old people, that's it.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I have a lot of memory. I'll never forget Lenny. Why? One day, when I work at night, I heard some voice like, "Huh, huh, huh," in my bank site. I'm very shocked. I was very shocked and I looked, my bank, one of my residents crying a lot. I asked her, and she missed her family, she missed her home and so I can't control myself and I'm crying with her, and hug her, wipe her face, and giving her cookie, to say something. I talk to her so much, and after that she was happy and I'm also was very happy. I was very happy. After two weeks, my general manager, when I would go and I could work, she would called my name and she gave me a small card. It was surprise. It was surprise. It has heading-- there is a heading that says, "Wow, great job." Oh my God. I don't understand it. To my name from the manager desk and they are praising me. They say, praising, "Provide extra love, affection, and attention to crying, sad resident." What? I'm surprised because I was understanding when asking her, my manager, and she told me, "I saw in my camera, do you remember the last weeks? I am really happy with you. Some resident, she's crying and sad, and then you hug her and pay attention." Oh my God. I'll never forget that day. I really, really happy.
