Hi, my name is Margarita. I live in Oakley, CA and I have seven years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I have a friend who I took care for a like few years then I realized that I like this, so that's why I decide to become a caregiver.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Antonia. I took care of her for five years. When I started taking care of her, she was still fine and she remembers everything. But she has Alzheimer's. I remember when she used to wait for me every morning, and then later on she doesn't remember me anymore. But still she smile every time she sees me. For that, I'm feeling like, "I'm doing something good with this person because she still has something in her mind telling that she remembers me. Her smile, her happiness. That's the way I want to remember her.
