Hi, I'm Emeriza. I live in Daly City, CA and I have a 10 years experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I loved to taking care of people, especially people who had dementia and people who needs a companion.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is that they have to be more patient, more understanding, and they have to be active and focus on what the patient needs.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I would never forget is the one when I got first, he was really weak and his family was telling me that he won't live longer. But then when I took care of him, I did my best and he got stronger. And when I was with him, I had to do everything, and then he was so happy and he was very caring. He treated me like I'm his granddaughter. And I will miss him because on the day he passed away, I was there beside him and he was holding my hand.
