Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
Hi my name is Emma. I live in Daly City, and I have been a caregiver for 11 years. The person that inspired me to be a caregiver was my grandmother in the Philippines, she had a heart problem. So that was how I began to take care of the elderly.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The first client that I remember is Joe. I like him because he's funny and easy to get along with. What we did everyday was go shopping, walking, and well we got along together. I took care of him for 5 years. What I learned from Joe is to be patient and always need to understand him because of his condition.
What is your proudest moment as a caregiver?
What makes me proud as a caregiver is to make my client improve, keep them well-groomed, make sure my client is eating good, and always have initiative to be active. That's what I'm proud of as a caregiver.
