Hi, my name is Monique. I live in Berkeley, CA and I've been a care provider for 15 years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because as a kid I had the experience of going to work with my aunt or my grandmother being able to see how they would make their clients happy.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, treat your client how you would want to be treated or how you would want your loved one to be treated.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Abdul. He introduced me to so many different foods. Mediterranean, Indian, Thai, Japanese. I felt like every time I sat down with Mr. Abdul we were in a different country, or a different continent, or even a different planet. I enjoy taking him out, exploring, and learning about these different types of food.
