Hi. My name is Ruby. I live in Concord, California, and I have seven years of experience in caregiving and as a medication technician and hospice and memory care as well.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I pretty much get along with the residents and all my patients in assisted living. I fell in love with the caregiving, and I love my residents, and they became my passion.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to the new caregivers would be to treat your residents or care for your residents like you're caring for your own mom and dad or your family.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget this David whom I used to play chase all the time. He would wait for me every day after the dinner, so I would come downstair and play chess with him. I still think of him every day, and I really miss him.
