Hi, my name is Melat. I live in San Jose, but I'm currently in San Francisco because I'm joining San Francisco State University. I have an experience in elderly care and dementia care for three years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because that's what I like to do. What made me do care is my clients. I'm happy doing that. I'm happy when I see my clients doing better every day.
What piece of advice would you give to a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver would be to just love what you do. Don't be stressed out. Be careful when you do the work for the client. Be happy every day. Do your best to make the client better and also to make yourself better, and be careful while doing care.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client that I will never forget, is named Jack. He had a disease called dementia, but he always had a smile on his face. He always gives cheer and love for his family, also for the caregivers around him. I'll never forget him
