Hi, my name is Amye. I live in Carson, CA and I have 4 years experience of caregiving.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because ever since I was little I knew I had a passion for taking care of people. I was introduced in the caregiving field when a neighbor of mine needed care. This elderly lady I cared for four years, and I really enjoyed the experience of it. I love bringing a smile to people's faces and just knowing that I can help somebody else.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be is to have patience. You need to have patience in this field because not everybody can exactly explain to you what they want. Having patience gives you the opportunity to not only learn about your client but learn the things that they like and the needs that they need.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Casey. She's my most memorable client because there wasn't a day that went by that I didn't feel good about what I was doing.
