Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
My name is Jess. I live in San Francisco. I work as a caregiver 14 years. I started taking care, as a nurse and then I developed the passion. That's why I continue to take care of the seniors here in the United States.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
My first client, that comes in my mind, is Edward. He is a dementia patient and then, you know, he's very combatant before I met him. So he threw something at me, spit at me, he's always mad at me, and he keep repeating questions, every time, but in the long run, I made the relationship. So, he's very cooperative at the end.
What piece of advice would you give to a new caregiver?
What is your proudest moment as a caregiver?
If I could give one piece of advice to some caregivers, it must be, be patient because, as we know, our clients they're old or some of our clients they're taking some medication or some drugs that they'regoing to follow their emotions.
My clients describe me as hardworking, calm, and honest.
