Hi, my name is Clara Villanueva, and I live in Hayward. I've been a caregiver for seven years now.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver when I started my massage therapy club, and I notice my mom had Fibromyalgia. I started caring for her, and that's how I began back in 2010, and I liked it.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to be patient. This job requires a lot of patience. You have to be kind. You have to understand the patient.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget will be Marilyn. She will always be a person that every time I went to care for her, she was always happy to see me. That's the client that I will never forget, Marilyn.
