Hi, my name is Darkeisha. I live in Moreno Valley, CA. And I've been a caregiver for almost 10 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I've been wanting to go to school for internship or residency, and it's a part of the medical field that interests me.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to make sure that you have empathy and compassion, that you're able to identify their needs. Also, your ability to follow set rules and protocol.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Jeffrey. He was one of my dementia patients, and the last thing that he remembered was, being obsessed with Baywatch. So for his birthday, we got him Baywatch collection, as well as gave him a Baywatch themed birthday party for his birthday.
