Hi my name Keshaun. I live in Riverside,CA and I have been a caregiver for six years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my now deceased grandfather. He had Alzheimer's and I was taking care of him within our home.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver will be to always make who you're taking care of comfortable and make sure they're satisfied at the end of the day. Do what's right and to make sure that they're treated respectfully as a human being.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget, her name is Betty. One thing I'll never forget is how she never wanted the other caregivers to do anything for her, like make up her bed or getting dressed. She always just wait on me and I just thought that was just so heartwarming because you know she knew that I knew what I was doing and she was comfortable with me. She was always happy to see me.
