Hi my name is Joneshia. I live in Inglewood,CA and I have been a caregiver for eight years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I have a younger brother that was born with spina bifida and I wanted to help my mother take care of him.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to always be patient and understanding of the client's needs and feelings.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I would never forget, would be a elderly lady that I took care of, that was bed bound and I remember her spirit and just how kind and nice she was, even though she was in a very bad situation and wasn't able to take advantage of things that normal people would be able to take advantage of. She was just so happy and excited, and just happy to be alive that day. I just really enjoyed taking care of her.
