Hi I'm Gladys. I live in San Jose, CA. I have three years caregiving experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I graduated a Bachelor of Science in nursing and I realized that nursing is all about caring. So I love caring for people, how treat their life and it feels good when people appreciate what you're doing. So definitely I love taking care of people so I love being a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to do the job properly or not just because of the money. Do the job right by treating the clients with respect and love.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is Jonas because I used to be her caregiver for two years and when I'm about to relocate and leave the job, she started crying and she said she doesn't want me to leave and she appreciated me for what I had done for her and she still wants me to be her caregiver. I'm really happy because I was able to touch her life even for a short period of time. So she's so memorable and I will never forget her.
