Hi, my name is Evelia. I live in Nuevo, CA and I've been a caregiver for 13 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver to take care of a loved one who was my mother. And ever since then, I have been a caregiver for 13 years and I enjoy and love working with seniors, helping them out, and provide whatever I can.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to have a lot of patience and to care for elderly seniors as you were taking care of a loved one.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget was a female patient with Alzheimer's and even though she had Alzheimer's, she remembered my name twice and that was something special for me.
