Hi, my name's Julia. I live in Pasadena,CA and I have been working as a caregiver for six years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because one of my friends told me to go and apply to a facility, so I've been working in that facility for six years.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a caregiver would be that we need to learn that they need and we need to be a friend with them because if we're not a friend with them, they will feel that we're going to hold them, so when you're friend with a patient that's a good beginning because we're making friends over there.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I don't have any special client that I remember because I see all of them as special and all of them make something especially in our lives that we will never forget. Sometimes an action, a smile, a word that they say, so for me, all the client that I have been taking care, they're all special to me. They all have leave something in my heart that I won't never forget.
