Hi, my name is Decontee. I live in Phoenix, Arizona, and I've been a caregiver for five years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my grandma. When she was sick, I used to stay home, take care of her after school. That's what inspired me to become a caregiver. I just love working with people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be don't be ashamed to reach out to people, to ask questions, be a positive person, and just be you.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
My client I will never forget is Gertrude who I'm still working on. She is a loveable person.She is always a cheerful person. She makes me happy.
