Hi, my name is Aesha. I live in the city of Bellflower, CA and I've been a caregiver for over 15 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandmother was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and she was bed-ridden and she needed a 24-hour caregiver. So, that's how I became a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be patient and take your time because every resident's needs are different and just be understanding that they need our help. We're there for them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Bob. Every morning that I come to work she greets me at the door to let me know how his day and night went, and also just be so excited to see me when I come and sad to see me when I leave.
