Hi, my name is Jayisha. I live in Vallejo, CA and I've been caregiving for 10 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver for both of my grandparents when I was young and they pretty much inspired me to do it as a profession as the elderly are really in need of help.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would definitely be to have a lot of patience because it is very tough helping out in the beginning. And to also care for the clients as if they were your own loved one.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Lucy. She was really funny. She was very upbeat. She taught me how to play a lot of new card games that I didn't know how to play. She also taught me how to work in her garden which I didn't have any idea about and it was really fun for me. I enjoyed working with her and I look forward to working with the next client and having just as much fun as well.
