Hi, my name is Ben'Jai and I've been a caregiver for four years and I live in San Fransisco, CA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver four years ago. I like to take care of elderly people. I was taking care of my daddy for two years before he passed away. I'm currently taking care of my mother off and on due to her little medical problems, but I like to take care of elderly people. I like to help them out since they can't really do for theyselves.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, just to have patience. Make sure that you're a very friendly, outgoing person and that you really like to deal with elderly people because they need your time and you'll love it.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The most memorable client I ever had, he really couldn't do things for himself. He couldn't move his hands, his legs or nothing. I had to bathe him, change him, feed him. I had to do everything with him. That was my most memorable client that I ever had.
