Hi, my name is Ayla. I live in Squaw Valley, CA and I've been a caregiver for two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because when I was 12 years old my grandma got sick. Then, I found a job and it was perfect, working with mentally disabled adults, and I just fell in love with the job.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Kristen. She was an elderly, she had bipolar disorder and Asperger's. And she was kind of a little out there, and kooky, and silly. She loved music and church. I remember going to church and just dancing with her, because she would be up dancing. And I just love that she had no care in the world. And she is probably one of my top favorite people in this world.
