Hi, my name is Hazeleen. I live in Alhambra, CA and I've been a caregiver for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I care for elderly people. I'm also a nurse graduate so I have a knowledge or idea in medical field, and I used to care for my father who had cancer when I was still in the Philippines.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be it is a good job. Just continue to give love and care to your patients, especially with elderly people, and of course take good care of yourself, too, or you won't be able to care for your patients.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Mr. Seymour. I remember when he told me that for him I am an excellent caregiver, and he told me a joke that if he's not married he's going to marry me.
