Hi, I'm Judith. I've been working as a caregiver for a couple of years. I'm living in Carson, CA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I'm inspired by my family to take care of the elderly because I'm passionate, and kind, and loving caregiver because I'm a Filipino. I came from the Philippines, and I migrated to the US, and Filipinos are good at family ties. That's why Filipinos are good caregivers. We are passionate.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to new caregivers, you have to be working with the elderly. They will consider their patient as their loved ones. Be passionate, be kind, and be understanding to them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client that I will not forget is Barbara because she's really good to me. She considers me as her family. All their families are good to me. I've been working with her for six years, and I work for 12 hours every day, and I consider Mrs. Barbara as one of my family, too, because they accept me as one of their family.
