Hi, my name is Dorisha. I live in the City of Compton, CA and I have been a caregiver for 12 years.

How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my grandmother who raised me. And right now she might not be able to live, but I want to carry on what I have been doing, which is taking care of the elderly. And I just have the love and the passion for it and I want to continue. That's my grandmother's dying wish. If she goes and she passes away, I know she still wants me to care for people, love people and I promised her that's what I'll do. And I'm trying to push through and further my career with being a caregiver for a personal loved one that may not make it.

How did you get into caregiving?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, patient. If this is something that you truly want to do, be patient. Take your time. Always attend to what you have to do, just be there. Be there. Be motivated. Make it seem like this is your grandmother or your loved one and you wouldn't want nobody to hurt your family. I would say just be there, be present. Let them see your passion for it.

Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is my grandmother, just her loving words. Right now she is going through Alzheimer's and everything. But just her being loving and caring, grateful, appreciative. I will never forget my grandmother. She's so strong, and willing. And I will never forget that.
