Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
How would you describe yourself?
My name is Lucia Velasquez please call me Lucy. I have been a CNA for four years. I live in San Jose. I became a caregiver because I was working in a retirement place and I know the needs of older people, and I really like to work with them.
People say that I am compassion and caring about their parents, and I like to be happy and to share that I'm happy and make them happy too
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
One of the clients I work with, she was a Russian lady, so I liked to talk to her and listen to her. Well, wonderful feelings that she can tell about her past. Plus for me its good to have a good relationship with our patients even though they can't remember exactly what they're really telling me maybe later on, but the good thing is that I'm listening to them. When they really want to talk I want to be there to listen.
