Hello, my name is Gell. I live in Paramount, CA. I been working as a caregiver for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because when I was young, I lived with my grandma's Mom, I took care of her. And then when I moved here in California, I took CNA, and then I worked as a CNA. And now I've been working for three years. And I love my job.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be just be patient, and just love your job because working as a caregiver is not easy. But if you love it, you'll work for it. That's it.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Mildred. She was my first job. I worked with her for a year and a half. And I don't think she is just a client. I think that she was a family to me. The way she cared for me and the way I cared for her, it was a different relationship. She was not just a client. She was like a family. So I will never forget her.
