Hi, my name is MaryLou. I live in Salinas, CA. I have 14 years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I truly care for elderly. I truly am very passionate about the work. I enjoy the experience of caring for others.
What advice would you give a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to respect the client that you're working for. Always make sure that your client is safe and always give passionate care and always make sure that the client is okay with what you're doing for them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I'll never forget. She was very kind, very loving, very accepting to care. She would smile every day you walked in the door and every time you walked out. She laughed at your jokes. She laughed at everything that you were doing for her and she was very passionate about her caregivers. She really loved us so much. This woman was just a bright star and I could never forget this woman. When she passed away it was kind of sad but to know that a woman like that lived on Earth, it made Earth so livable. She gave happiness to her caregivers. I loved this woman very much.
