My name is Brenda Solinas. I live in Gilroy, and I have one year experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I like to help others, and I feel like elderly people are always in need. And also because sometimes they don't have family support, and I like to just help be there to talk to them, like companionship.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be patient, and loving, caring. There's a lot of things, but those are the main points.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A cIient I will never forget are those that appreciate your help, and they hug you or make you feel special with your help.
