Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
Hello. My name is May Anne Galuz. I live in the San Bruno, San Francisco City. I was a nurse in the Philippines, so because of that I became a caregiver to the elderly.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The first client that comes to my mind is one who was a comatose patient. I took care of him for almost six months, and I changed his diapers, gave him baths, and gave him his medicines. Also giving him food in the nasogastric tube and assisted his physical therapies.
What piece of advice would you give to a new caregiver?
If I could give advice to a new caregiver, I would advise them to love their patients and to be patient with them because they need loved ones.
