Hi, my name is Aicha. I live in Cypress, CA and I have six years of experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver six years ago because my mother-in-law, she came to live with us. She has Alzheimer and dementia and I had to take care of her. She inspired me to be a caregiver. After she passed, I went to other agencies and I worked privately too so I have a lot of experience.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver is to be patient, to be compassionate and to know how to be empathy because empathy is the main key to be a very successful health caregiver.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will forget, her name is Ruth. I worked with her for about one year and she was in a bad condition. She had a stroke and I couldn't ever forget working with her. She was among my best, best clients.
