Hi, my name is Alijah, and I live in Beaumont, CA and I have two years of caregiving experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because it's something that I simply enjoy to do. And I went to school for CNA, and eventually will continue school to become an LVN, then RN.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to pay attention to detail, remain patient at all times, and to learn to enjoy what you do, because it is helping another person and can be very rewarding.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Linda. I met her in assisted living, and she was funny, always positive, willing to cooperate with her vital signs. She was always excited for her husband's visits, and loved getting her hair done in the morning.
