About
Hello! My name is Claudia. I live in Indio, CA, and I have been a caregiver for 23 years.

How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because, my grandmother's mom was very ill, and she needed help. My grandmother was a teacher, and she was always busy with school, and after-school projects, so I decided that I was going to help her after school.

What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, treat the clients like they were your family, with respect, love, and care, because one day we're also going to need help, if God permits us to get to that age, and love your job and care for your job.

Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is, a lady with cancer. She was so full of life, and so joyous. She would always have a smile on her face. And couple of months, she was in remission. She loved me so much when I would walk into her house, into her home, so warming. She was full of love. But then a couple of weeks ago, she had bad news. Her cancer was back, and that just tore her apart. She didn't want to die, but she knew she was going to go. And she told me one day, "Thank you so much for treating me so good. I'm never going to forget you." And that just made me feel so good about myself, that I knew I made a little difference in her life and I mattered to her.
