Hi, my name is Maria. I have experience for 10 years as a caregiver and I live in Newark, CA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I was petitioned for employment in this kind of job and then I had family members as well who needs care and assistance in their daily living skills and I learned to love this job.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to the new caregiver would be to be more understanding to the needs of the client, more patience and also be compassionate.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I remember, she's a female and I worked with her for three years and she became like a family to me. She's very nice sometimes. She has her moods but I was able to deal with it and then we understood each other.
