Hi, my name is Mariana. I live in San Juan Capistrano, CA and have 30 years experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I have compassion with the elderly, seniors, all kinds of condition. And also, to educate myself, so I could provide better and professional help to anyone in need.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to be prepared, to watch and provide the needs of the person you're taking care of. That's what they expect from a caregiver.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is the first patient that I cared for, my very first experience as a caregiver. It was not the greatest, it was depressing to see what this person went through. But I made sure I provided what this person needed.
