Hi, my name is Cecilia. I live in the city of Downey, CA and I have been a caregiver for two and a half years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I am very helpful and compassionate to other people. I have a deep care in my heart to help many people, especially people with developmental disabilities because I do have a niece who was born with developmental disabilities and it is a big interest of mine.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, one is you have to have the heart to care for other people and be selfless. Two, to be compassionate, and most of all, to be patient with clients.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Steven. He was exactly like we are. Although he had a disability, he was always happy and in a good mood. A beautiful, kind spirit.
