Hi, my name is Lashay. I live in San Diego, CA. I've been a caregiver for about nine years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandmother was sick and she needed help, so I used to be the one that cared for her.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be you have to have lots of patience. You have to be nice and willing to do everything the patient asks you to do.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
My client I will never forget is Miss Kay. She was a really nice, loving lady. She was in a wheelchair, but she was very sweet. She was happy and she just kept a smile on her face. Kept me happy and wanting to work with her.
