Hello. My name is Sukha. I have been a caregiver for eight years, and currently, I'm living in Sunnyvale, CA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I have been a caregiver because I have been interested in studying medical field background, and I'm curious about disease and sickness, and that inspires me to work at the extended care facility. And I've been in contact with many kind of different illness, and that just inspired me to move on and continue my caregiver job.
What piece of advise would you share with a client?
My advice to my client - my patient - is that they take care of themselves by doing plenty of exercise, and stay active, and if possible, eat a vegetarian diet.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client that I remember was Marianne, and she's a great client to work with. I'm just being there at her home, and being her companion, and being her good listener, and learning to share our story - her family story and my family story - and we are honest to one another, and we keep our personal family matter confidential, and we are sincere to one another, and we laugh a lot. And I'm just being there with her and help her out whenever she need.
