Hi, my name is Cecilia. I live in Santa Barbara, CA and I have 11 years of caregiving experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I took care of my grandpa for about two years. That inspired me to go back to school and get my CNA certificate and my home health to be able to help other people to give them love through caring and companion work.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, when you walk into someone's house and you're new you need to approach in a nice gentle way by introducing yourself to them and walking in with a nice smile to make them feel safe.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Steven. He was a sweet, loving patient or client that I had. He would always thank me every time I would do something for him. That showed me that he was happy with my job.
