Hi, my name is Rosary. I live in Pittsburg, CA. I've been a caregiver for over four years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I'm compassionate with people's needs, and I would like to help the elderly, because I myself have helped my family members, and I see that they need compassion, and I really like to be able to help the elderly because they need help.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a caregiver would be to try to pay attention to the client and their facial expressions and stuff, because some clients can't talk, and you have to go by the facial expressions, if they're okay or something's not right, how they're doing. And just pay attention to what's going around in your surroundings when you're caring for the elderly.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Angie. She was a bedbound lady and needed a lot of care, and she just got me to really care for her in a way as she was my family member, and I'll always remember her. She was a very nice lady even though she couldn't talk. She would always smile and let me know that she was comfortable. So, that is my client that I will always remember.
