Hi, my name is Daphney. I live in Los Angeles, CA and I have been a care-giver for over 20 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a care-giver, because I have a heart to help and care for people in need. My grandmother was a nurse, and she was a very nurturing person, and she instilled that in me.
What advice would you give to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new care-giver would be you have to have passion for this line of work. You have to be a very caring person, and you have to cater to the needs of your client and the client's family.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Miss Annie. Miss Annie suffered from dementia. The funny thing is she never forgot who I was. She would always encourage me to stay in this field of work. She appreciated everything that I did for her and the other care-givers. She loved life, and she always had an encouraging word for you
