Hi, my name is Kamilah. I live in Antioch,CA and I've been a caregiver for eight years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I've always had a heart and a passion for helping people. Throughout the years, I've had to help different family and friends with different illnesses and situations in life. I always enjoy helping people get better.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to any new caregiver would be to use a lot of patience and not get overwhelmed with the task that you're given or when helping someone with their daily living. Also to make sure to take out time when you're off to replenish yourself and make sure that you're healthy enough to help take care of the next person.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is one of my patients, Joe. He was very nice. He was elderly. He always had a good, positive attitude even though he had many illnesses and chronic ailments. His positive attitude and outlook on life always brought a smile to my face and always brought cheer to everyone he came in contact with.
