Hi, my name is Juvie. And I live in South San Francisco, CA and I've been working as a caregiver for less than 12 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because they have a home for elders. Because I used to be taking care of my grandparents when they were still alive.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver: once you're in the job, you should give your full heart to your resident. Don't treat them as a client, just treat them as your own family like your own parent. You should give 100% of your love to them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget was my client when I working in memory care because I treat her like my own mother. And she passed away and that hurts me a lot because I loved her so much. And I can see my grandma in her.
