Hi! My name is Kisha. I live in Sacramento, CA and I have seven years experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because a family friend needed a caregiver for his elderly mother some years back, and that's what inspired me to get a CNA and become a caregiver.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be patient, to be observant, to be kind, and to be safe at all times, and to make sure that your client as well.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Rose. A very sweet, elderly lady who was really kind all the time. Every day, she always had a smile on her face, even though she was going through a lot with her health and things of that nature. She was just always so kind. Such a really pleasant spirit, so I will never forget her. She was really grateful and kind to me at all times. No matter what kind of day either of us were having, she was always really kind, so I will never forget her.
