Hi, my name is Maria. I live in Oakland, California and I have five months experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I decided to become a caregiver because I really care for others. I saw my mother suffer and I saw my husband suffer. If I do it for the others right now, I feel a little relief.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
For the client I never forget is, I cooked for this lady and for some reason I forgot to put the little water in the gravy and she was very kind when it come to me and instead of getting mad she said, "No, no no. Sweetheart, you have to put in the water. Don't worry. Everybody learns something every day."
