Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
I am Gerry Abella and I have been a caregiver for more than 10 years and I live in the Sunset District of San Francisco. 

I have a very, very soft heart for caring for the elderly. Having cared for my grandmother, my mother, my father and brother who have all been sick. My father - 15 years I took care of my father. My mother - she had cancer, and my grandmother was suffering from elderly age with many aillments. My brother who had a brief bout of insanity. 

Over here in America, I know that there is a lot of people who need help and I am willing to help with all my heart.

Who is one of your most memorable clients?
Yes, I have had a lot clients in my life and I am very thankful for having spent the time to help those clients. But my favorite client is my client now. He's a 46 year old guy with HIV and he is very, very poor. One of my goals is really to feed him - give him nutrition because I see in the notes that no one can really feed him. He only feels like eating when he is with me - I don't know how I did it, but I am able to feed him, and hydrate him and give him all of his medications, and for that I am very happy.

What have you learned from caregiving?
One thing I learned about being a good caregiver is to humble myself and being humble enables us to reach out to all the people in the world who need help.
