Hi, my name is Johnai. I live in Richmond, CA and I have been a caregiver for 5 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I love helping people. I really like helping people that deserve help, that appreciate help, and that make me feel wanted and needed as well.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
Be patient, loving, and understanding
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I had a male client in the Marin area. He was a very sweet 74-years-old, he really kind of made me feel like I had a place in this industry for working with people in need and with disabilities and the elderly that are just not as mobile as the used to be. He was very sweet, his wife was very sweet also, and he loved the work that I did. He complimented everything that I did. Just being able to help and bathe him and just feed him or just give him fruit or anything he was just so thankful for it. He appreciated everything that I did for him and he really made me feel love and confident in the career path that I chose.
