Hi, my name is Marisol. I've been living in San Francisco, CA for 30 years and I've been working as a caregiver for 25 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver since I was a child. I help my grandparents. My grandpa get a stroke and my grandma get alzheimers. I help them till both pass away. Now I do for other people to keep them happy, and I keep a lot of love, and I help a family.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I remember a client that I have, his name was Mel. When I'm paired up with him, the first day he told me very, very, very nice history. I thought he was playing with me. He told me that he was very famous person, and I asked him why. So he told me that he find the missing ship that was lost for Spain in the year 1622, and he find it. And it was a big, big ship that bring a lot of lot of coins in gold. And he point me the address that was all that resource that if I want to see it. He give me the address, and was like a museum. And I was very surprised. And he told me, "Everybody around the wharves knows me. And you will see in this museum my pictures, family, eveywhere. Come over to see all the ships that I find." And this ship was the name - Spanish ship - the name is foreign. And I was happy to meet somebody famous around the work with nice history. And later come a lot of friends of him, and lots of very, very famous people like movie stars, like singer people, like famous people, that I had the privilege to know for him. That was very nice history of this client because I know a lot of famous poeple for him. That was very, very nice history for me.
