Hi, my name is Viola, I live in San Mateo, CA and I have been a caregiver for 35 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver when I was working around for the elderly in my community, in my parish, and in the agency where I live around in San Mateo County.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver - is to be kind, be honest with the client, and communicate very well what she needs or he needs and with the family.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I'm very happy with a client named Juanica. And she was a very religious lady. She always wanted to go to the mass every morning. I took her to the mass, and I was so happy. I miss her. She passed away last October.
