Hi, my name is Martina. I live in Newman, CA and I've been caregiving for over 10 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mom was in the healthcare when she was my age and I've been around it my whole life. Taking care of people and elderly just comes naturally to me.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be take your time. Take your time because you want your patient or whoever you're taking care of to acknowledge what you're doing and to know that you're there for them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I will never forget is Ms. Daisy. She always had the sweetest smile and always happy to see me. She just welcome me into her home and into her life. She was very happy in the end to know that I was there to help take care of her.
