Hi, my name is Elenita. I am from Carson, CA and I've been a caregiver for 12 years now.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I was not able to take care of my mom here in California because I was in the Phillippines.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to have compassion while caring for the elderly because if not, you're not going to be a good caregiver.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Ann. She was a blind lady, a bed-ridden lady in a hospice for 2 years. I was able to cure her footsore, and then her family was very happy with my service and even the nurses from the hospice.
