Hi, my name's Maria. I live in San Diego, CA and I have 1 year experience of being a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I felt that if I can help somebody in need then that's doing something good for myself and others.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be compassionate, to be caring, to take your job, and see the people as family not just a resident, or a client.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I would never forget is the one that I would always go up to, and he will always find a way to make me feel like I was not just an employee, but I was part of his family. He would always make me smile even in the hardest times. He would make me forget about thing that would stress me out
