Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
My name is Elma. I came from Philippines and I live now in Berkeley, CA. I been as a caregiver for so many years. I've worked in Hong Kong for three years. And then after my contract, I worked as a caregiver and nanny at the same, taking care of an old lady who's about 92-99 years old for four years. Then another here again for more than two years, as a caregiver.
What piece of advice would you give to a new caregiver?
The one piece that I advise to a caregiver, like every time I talk to my daughter because she's also a caregiver like me, and I always tell her to always listen to what they want.
