My name is Erica Mariscal and I live in Antioch and I have been a caregiver for 3 years
What got you into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I was going to school for nursing and I also took care of my aunt and an elderly woman.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice would be for this type of work you have to have a passion and patience and be willing to care of somebody and meet their needs.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I will never forget that one person that couldn't take care of themselves and needed help bathing, getting dressed. Just that smile on their face when you meet their needs and they are grateful, just brightens your day.
