Hi, my name is Rickisha. I live in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. I've been a caregiver for the past 11 years.

How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my great-grandmother got sick with Alzheimer's and the whole hospice really got to me. So, I figured I would do that to help people that actually need someone to help them, that's really in me, when their families couldn't be there for them.

What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, when working with someone with dementia or Alzheimer's, to not get offended or take things personally with what they say. Because at the time, they might not know what they're doing or they maybe be having a flashback to something that had happened when they were younger. They take it out on you, because they are not aware of their situation.

Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is, when a client told me they really loved when I came back to work, because they had no one to talk to or no one would understand what they were going through at the time.
