Hi, my name is Monica. I live in the City of Pasadena, CA and I've been a caregiver for 5 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I had to take care of my mom for four years. She had Alzheimer's. She already passed away.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a caregiver is to be patient and provide a lot of compassionate care for every individual.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I'm praying that I will never forget-- forget is the pain. And every time that he saw me coming-- like from the health care, he always saw me as a family member and all the time was smiling and happy with me.
