Hi, my name is Ihuoma. I live in Carson, CA and I've been a caregiver for 1 year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I took care of my grandmother when she was sick.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to treat them as though they are a part of your family. Because if you see the person as a stranger or patient that you don't know about, there will be a barrier. But when you bring the barrier down by seeing them as part of your family, you can go all the way to make them comfortable.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I'll never forget is Miss Dobb. I love her. She's 98 years old. She doesn't really like to take a shower all the time, but whenever I'm there and it's just me, she would like to take a shower because I make it more fun for her. I really miss her because she's a wonderful lady and I will always remember her.
