Hi, my name is Lebrada. I live in El Monte, CA and I've been a caregiver for two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my aunt, she was very ill, and I took care of her for a couple of years aside from another couple for a year while taking care of two other clients.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to be responsible, and loving, and caring for each client that you have.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget, I had two clients, a husband and wife, Imelda and Gus. One was bedridden and the other was in a wheelchair. And when I was started working for them, for two days and two nights, I had to reassure them that they're going to be okay. They depended on me for those two nights especially as I reassured that I'm with them. Anyway, this is a heartwarming story.
