Hi, my name is Kezia. I live in San Pablo, CA and I've been a caregiver for 1 year.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because a lot of family members that I have needed caregiving, and it is part of me to help others and my family.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be basically building your relationship with your patient and learning the type of person you're dealing with makes your job easier. Also, if you look at is as if your family member or your loved one needed caregiving, how would you want someone to treat them? And that should be your same reaction and the same treatment you should give to your patient.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I will never forget is Linda. She made my work experience very memorable because she was an overall a great spirited person. She was very helpful in teaching me the things that I didn't know or I needed to know to better acquaint her. She was very sweet, and she was very spiritual, and we had the greatest conversation.
