About

Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
Hi. My name is Chimalukem. I live in San Jose, and I have three years experience in caregiver. The person who inspired me to be a caregiver was my dad. He was diagnosed of cancer of the bladder in 2008, and I took care of him was from grooming to meal assistance to bathroom assistance - so many things a good caregiver would do.

Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is a woman who had dementia. There's this particular about her, she's always appreciative. She'll always give you a hug and say thank you. Even during her condition, but she will always remember to appreciate you, and that's-- she introduced me to her families, and from there we've become family friends.

Tell us about your most challenging client.
The most challenging client I had was a woman who had stroke. She was overdemanding, hard to please, you can say. I was able to overcome it with love, treating her as my mom, the way I would have treated my parent, my mom, my dad. So I was able to overcome that with love. So that is the secret.

What are your strengths as a caregiver?
What I think that makes me great caregiver is I'm empathetic, putting myself in their situation.

What advice would you give to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to show love and kindness. With these two things, you can overcome any challenge that comes.

What is your proudest moment as a caregiver?
The moments that make me proud are always when the clients say, "Thank you," hold your hands, and give you a hug. I remember one of my days when I was a caregiver. One of the clients, I was changing her. I was dressing her, and she happened to suddenly bathroom, went to big number two right then, and it was a mess. And after I've cleaned up everything, she gave me a hug and said thank you.
