Hi, my name is Cynthia. I live in the city of El Monte, CA. And I've been working as a caregiver for one year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because when I was younger, I would see my mother fall to her disabilities. And now that I'm older, I feel like I want to do more for someone who is in need of assistance.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to treat them right, with all respect, and treat them all the same.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Olivia. Due to her disabilities, she would get depressed. And when she was left alone, she would think suicidal. And when she would shower, she would tend to fall. And as I grew up, I was there and I feel like, now I can do more for somebody else.
