About
Hi, my name is Yvonne. I live in Van Nuys, CA and I've been a caregiver for 14 years. 

How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I was taking care of my grandmother. And when she died, that's when I started taking care of elderly clients. I love doing that. I love nursing. So that's my passion. 

What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver was to not to take things personal, because some of the cases are hard. Some clients are hard to take care of. And just not to take things personal and just to be a good caregiver, and be on time, hard-working, and just to love what you do. That's the advice I would give. I think the most thing is just to have patience and not to take anything personal. 

Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is the client I took care for nine years. I started working for him 2007, and he died last year. He was the easiest man to take care of. He never complained. He cared about everyone. He was such a sweet man. You knew something was hurting him, you would ask him, "Are you in pain?" He'll just say, "No," because he thought that maybe he was bothering people, anything like that. He became like my grandfather to me. He was a very sweet man, and he became family to me. And when he died, it was really hard for me, too, because I got attached to him. He was a very nice man. Everybody loved him. He was loved and I miss him dearly.
