Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
Hi, my name's Candelaria. I've been a caregiver for two years. I'm from San Pablo, California, and I would enjoy to care for someone that needs my caring. I became a caregiver by working at a retirement home for about six months after my grandmother took ill, and then I took time off work to take care of my grandmother, and she was with us for about a year until she passed. One way I improved my grandmother's conditions by cooking for the kids and her smelling the food and introducing to her, little by little, to different food that made her feel that she could eat them, and some of it better by her condition and being full of energy.
