Hi, my name is Kurtesha. I've been a caregiver for three years and I live in Hayward, CA.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandmother got sick one time and I had to take care of her for a while until she was able to be by herself. So now I like to help others.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, to just be respectful. Always be kind to your client. Make sure that you will do everything possible to help them and just stick around and be a friendly, kind caregiver because that's the most important thing.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Alice. She was so friendly and calm all the time, and all she wanted was a companion and someone to help her around the house, and I enjoyed working with her throughout the years.
