Hi, my name is Mashiya. I'm from San Francisco, CA and a caregiver for four years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my mother. She always influenced me to help out others. Then my father who had cancer. I helped him out for four years.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be just be yourself, help out others, be friendly. and do your job.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is my father, Michael, he had cancer. I helped him out and I had a lot of memories especially with music he listened to, getting through the days, the smiles. That's all I remember, and he passed away two months ago.
