Hi, my name is Adebowale. I live in Gwynn Oak, MD. And I've been a caregiver for 6 months.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my dad. He was my inspiration. I took care of him before he died.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, understand that you're taking care of a human life. You have passion. You have compassion. You show a them feelings. And you also try to ensure that you relate with your client.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Mr. Charles, the client I was taking care of in the evening shift, because he complimented me for the job that I did and he had confidence in me and he understood that I want him to be comfortable.
