Hi. My name is Makechia. I live in Cypress, CA and I have been a caregiver for 7 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my friend's grandmother, who inspired me to become a CNA and to further my education to become an RN. But unfortunately, I cannot afford the RN program so I am a certified nursing assistant who loves to help care for all types of ill patients.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver would be to have patience, love, understanding, and foremost, appreciate what you do.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I most remember is Ross because of his loving, caring heart, his wisdom, his get-up-and-go attitude, and his courage.
