Hello, my name is Consuelo. I live in Long Beach, CA. I've been a caregiver for 3 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because in the past, I helped care for my grandmother and while looking for a new position, I decided I'd like to go back into the caregiving field.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is that they watch and listen, always remembering that they are caring for them in their home and they need to be respectful.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Margaret. That is one lady that never sat down. She had the onset of Alzheimer's and she was always up and down. And we got along.
