Hi, my name is Vanessa. I live in Los Angeles area, Boyle Heights. I've been a caregiver for two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I attended a vocational nursing program. I did graduate in 2015. After that, I started my caregiving career.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always be patient, be kind hearted, and have an open mind towards new things since you are working in their house, their environment. And try to make your patient as independent as possible.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I would never forget would be my most recent client. She was just very generous, very kind hearted, very loving. And she made you feel as if you were one of her own relatives
