Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into caregiving?
Hi, my name is Jan. I live in South San Jose, and I've been a caregiver for about one year. The person who inspired me into caregiving was Patricia Shaw. She takes care of patients. And she got benefited then, and how the patients also benefited from her. So I was very intrigued about it, so I want to learn more.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget, Patricia introduced to me. She's very nice, and also, she helped me to understand what her needs were. And I was kind of surprised because this is a very basic thing. She's also very easy to take care.
What are your strenths as a caregiver?
What is your proudest moment as a caregiver?
What I look forward in caregiving is just smile. My clients give me the most beautiful smile, knows that they are being taken care of. And myself then, I'm very happy that I can take care of them.
My proudest moment as a caregiver was to be treated like in the family. Because when I treat them, they treat me as the daughter or as a friend. So when I go to their house, then I treat them as my own mother or my elder sister. So they felt loved.
