Hi. My name is Maria. I live in Fremont, CA. I've been doing caregiving for 4 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I had to help take care of my sick grandmother, my sick mother, and also my sick stepdad. I also want to help elderly people who can't help themselves.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always be generous, always be respectful no matter what the situation is, and to always do your job and go beyond your job before and after your shift is over.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is named Sarah. She has nothing but kind to me, and I have been nothing but kind and respectful to her. She also was a companionship, and I loved talking to her. I love her wisdom, and that's what I loved her about.
