Hi, my name is Mariah. I live in Los Angeles, CA and I have been a caregiver for two years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I really enjoy taking care of others and I know that there's a lot of people that are in need of care. I do, as well, have loved ones that are in need of care that I have helped.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to be as kind, patient and understanding as possible. Just know that you really are helping someone. Try to do your best every single day and just give it your all.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I'll never forget is Gloria. We used to sit, watch lifetime movies together and eat lunch together. She always had me laughing. I will never forget her and the relationship that we grew together.
