Hi! My name is Melika. I live in Richmond, California and I have one year experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my grandmother needed the extra help due to health issues, but she's doing a lot better now, and, also, caring for my daughter. So, I believe that all intertwines together.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to have patience and to make sure you're being thoughtful to the person you're caring for. Other than that, I don't have too much to say being that I've only been with my grandmother for a year.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I will never forget is Miss Mary, due to her sense of humor and being that she was involved with God. She would talk about scriptures, the church she goes to, the people she had grown closer to. She taught me a lot more about God.
