Hello. I'm Kuklam. I live in Walnut Creek, CA. I have been a caregiver nine years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I grew up with my grandmother. She was 75 years old and I was 16 years old. I helped my grandmother with everything. I love to help the elder people.
What advice would you give to a new caregiver?
Caregiver have to be very nice, patient. Must love the elder people and be comfortable with them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I work with a lady, she had a dysphagia. It was so hard to feed her and other caregivers can't feed her very well. When they fed her, she was coughing. Since they hired me, I was singing while she eat the food and she never coughed while I fed her and it was so nice and so funny, while I was singing she was eating. I always remember and it was very good memory for me.
