Hi, my name is Gerardo. I live here in Los Angeles, CA and I have 10 years experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I become a caregiver because of a loved one. She's my mother and she is 81 years old.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to put first and foremost the welfare, the condition, the safety of the patient you are caring for. Especially, treat them as your beloved one or a family one.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Miss Cindy. She's very kind to me and I reciprocated that. She's very happy. She reminds me of my mama also. That's my mama, years have passed away, but caring for people is the way for me to always cherish the memories of my mama. That's why I do like this caring career for people.
