Hi. My name's Lourdes. I live in North Hollywood, CA. I have ten years being a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I want to take care of my sister and then I feel a compassion for another person.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to respect them, give them their privacy, make them feel safe and keep them happy.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I remember a lady. She had dementia and she always remember me so that's why I always keeping her in my heart because she was really nice. And then sometimes residents with dementia they always confused, they wandering around. But when she was close to me she feel really good and that's why always I remember her.
