Hi, my name is Mayra. I live in Fairfield, CA and I have been a caregiver for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I started being a caregiver because I want to help people, especially the eldery. They really need someone to be in charge of them.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a caregiver would be, to be passionate, to love the elder as your parents and treat them the same way that you wanted to be treated.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The thing that I would never forget from my client, Her name is Raquel. She was so funny that she used to wear glasses and she was wearing my glasses instead of her glasses. She felt very comfortable with my glasses that she didn't even realize that she was wearing my glasses instead of her glasses, so it was pretty funny.
