About
Hi! My name is Marilyn. I live in Hawthorne, California. I've been a caregiver for 16 years. 

How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mother's mother was in a wheelchair, and she couldn't get around. And, as I was a little girl, I had to help her. And my passion grew to help elderly people as they get old and they need assistance of walking, feeding, caring for them, passing them things, putting them in wheelchairs, passing them their canes, their walkers, just helping them around the house as a little girl. So as I grew up, my passion grew even stronger for them as I seen them get sicker and sicker, and weaker and weaker.

What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver, to pay attention to the patient, to love them, care for them, be very attentive, listen to them, and just be very loving. 

Who is one of your most memorable clients? 
A client that I will never forget, her name was Gloria. She was 88 years old. She was a hospice patient, they said she couldn't respond. But every time that I'd go there, I bathed her.
