Hi my name is Keisha. I live in Long Beach,CA and I've been a caregiver for 24 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mom was a nurse, and I just love helping people and I love working with the elderly. It's something that I had a passion for, since I was a little girl.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, just love what you do. Enjoy the time that you have with the person that you're taking care of. They're becoming like your family.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client that I have a good memory of is Margie. We would go get nails done, take her to get her hair done, go to the movies, just do girl talk and she would tell me about the past and everything and she was 84 and we still have contact with each other to this day.
