Hi, my name is Claudia. I live in El Monte, CA and I've been a caregiver for 8 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mom has been doing this for about 25 years, and she would call me to go help her sometimes, so that's how I started.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, you have to be very patient, very understanding. It takes a lot of time, and you have to be sure you know what to do.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget. Back in 2010, I was working with Lucille. She had dementia, and she was very funny. She would enjoy when I would take her out on outings to go have lunch. I would never forget her, very nice lady.
