Hi, my name is Glezel. I live in Coachella, CA and I have been a caregiver for four years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver after I took care of my husband who got sick for five months. And after that, I felt this is a job for a person who has the compassion to take care of older people who need help.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to be more compassionate and understanding and to take the job seriously.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I would never forget is this lovely woman who had dementia and she thought that her caregiver is her daughter. So we just give her all the love and support that she needed.
