Hi, my name is Wendolin. I live in Somar, CA and I've been a CNA for about a year now.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a certified nurse assistant because I've always been fond of the medical field and this was a stepping stone for me. I really enjoy caring for people and helping them out in whatever they need. I enjoy being a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to pay attention to details because that will help out in the job. Whether you would be checking for a bed sore, the person is declining, you always want to be alert and knowing what's happening with the person you are taking care of.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I would never forget was a client I had when I was working at a skilled nursing facility. She was there for a few years and I got to know her because we would spend time talking about how she was in her early age, what she majored in and what she did. She would always give me advice on what to do and always persuading me to keep going to school. I really cared for this lady a lot and we would spend hours talking and getting to know each other and I just really enjoyed her company.
