Hi, my name is Marisa. I live in San Bruno, CA and I've been a caregiver for two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver to care for a loved one and that inspired me to care for other people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver would be to be loving, compassionate, understanding and respectful.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I will never forget is Leonora. We shared so many experiences and memories about our country. We were both Italians and we would talk for hours, laugh, watch TV together and share meals from our country. We would talk about little silly things but we were so connected because she was very nice, I really loved her and I miss her.
