Hi, my name is Socorro. I live in Chula Vista, CA and I've been a caregiver for eight years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my parents, my mom and my dad, needed help with it. So I started helping them, and then I started working with other people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to have a heart and to really like what you're doing, and to be really patient and understand the need of the people that you're working with.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is a client that I worked with, and he just passed away about two weeks ago. He was really funny. He was making faces most of the time and telling jokes, and everything. And I used to look forward to going work with him. He was really nice.
