Hi. My name is Sade. I live in Oakland, California. I've been a caregiver for five years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my mom was one and I used to go to work with her and I used to help her out and I just loved it. Caring for older people is something special to do. I used to work for my grandmother and help her out a lot. That's why I like doing care giving.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for new caregivers would be just to be yourself, caring, loving and treat whoever you're caring for just like they were your family, just the way you would want to be treated.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
The client I will never forget is this last lady and her husband I was working with. They were very friendly and nice to me. I would clean their room, their livingroom and their bathroom all the time. She used to always share stories with me, saying how I reminded her of her neice. She was just very lovely. I really loved her a lot.
