Hi, my name is Thanh. I live in El Monte, CA and I've been a caregiver for two years.

How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because it's meaningful to me, it's rewarding, challenging and it's fascinating to be able to see how I can catch a person. The healing process of a person is really special because I want to be the one who can see the difference from the first day to the last or to see improvements in a person's life.

What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to be mindful that they need to be observant and they need to use their listening skills in order to provide quality care. A patient might not be able to verbally tell the caregiver that they need something so when a caregiver is observant of their patient then they are more likely to provide really good care.

What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
A client I will never forget is a lady named Maria. She has been in the hospital for a long time due to her cancer, she was in isolation because she was neutropenic, she couldn't have anybody with her in the room because they were afraid that she would get infected. Her white blood cells were too low for anyone to come into her room and it was a preventive precaution for her case. She was also in pain due to her chemo and one thing that touched me was that because not a lot of people come into her room due to her conditions, I was able to provide her a little bit of touching care, I asked her whether she wanted a massage and she really lit up when I asked her that. She has said that she would occasionally get massages when she was not sick and it was a really long time that she had been given one and so, I was able to give her a back massage and her face, it was just something that really touched me. One little gesture just made her day and I was really glad to be able to provide something like that.
