Hi, my name is Sisilia. I live in Hayward, CA and I have an experience of 22 years being a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I do care about the well-being of the loved ones, and I just love being with the elderly.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to be comfortable, and make sure that you have the heart of loving the elderly - especially the patient - and also the family, and that you're trustworthy, and also be reliable. Make sure that they have-- comfortable to be with you, because if they are not, they won't be satisfied.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I really loved this client of mine that I took care of about five years until the day she passed. I was a caregiver for her, but I had the love inside me treating her just as like my own. She noticed this lady noticed the way how I treated her as just like my own blood. I love being with elderly. I loved experience-- the show special things to them, that is like special bond with them, with me. I just love being with the elderly.
