Hi, my name is Wilhemina. I live in Murrieta, CA and I have 20 years experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I was getting into the nursing field and I had to be a certified nursing assistant. I did that. I retired my certification and kept my home health aide certificate.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to listen to the person what they are saying, what their needs are. Try to meet their needs.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is Maria. She was very family oriented, always wanted to talk about her family and how she met her husband and how she had her kids. Very important. Not just Maria, but many of my patients, they want to talk about their family and how happy they were and what kind of work they did.
