Hi my name is Paula. I live in Chula Vista, CA. I have experience over 30 years as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because when I was younger my mother had gotten ill. After she passed away, I vowed that I would take care of people helping them as much as I can. That's all I know how to do, it's all my life. It's my passion to help other people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be you have to be patient, you have to be considerate and you have to be loyal. Also, the main thing is trustworthy.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget,her name is Joy. I still see her face today. She was hesitant at first when I came to her but I was with her for five until this past August when she passed away. We had so many conversations, so many memories. All I can say is I still have those memories and I'll always take them with me.
