Hi, my name is Maria. I'm living in Sunnyvale, CA. And I've been working as a caregiver for 14 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I've become a caregiver since 2005. And I stopped working when I was going to have a baby. And then after that, when he grew up at five years old, I went back as a caregiver. And until now, I'm still going on as a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
Advice as a caregiver is just you work hard, and more patience, and kind, and make sure they are safe.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
My client's name is Dorothy. For my memorable thing with her as her caregiver, she liked to play cards with me. And we walked all the time. When we walked outside and she always kept repeating like, "I want to go home. I want to go home." So she really makes me laugh.
