Hi, my name is Indigo. I live in Signal Hill, CA and I've been in caregiving for about one year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I was taking care of loved ones. I started off taking care of my cousin who has autism. Then I took care of my elderly grandmother.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to always put their needs above anybody. Always put your clients' needs above anything. Always continue to try to improve yourself and improve the way you interact with your clients.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I'll never forget is one that's in the adult day program that I work in. Her name is Tammy. She's the sweetest thing, so pleasant, always giving out compliments. She really makes going to work every day just worth while because she makes me feel so good. She's incredibly nice. I do what I do because I love the clients
