Hi, my name is Shamoa. I Iive in Moreno Valley, CA and I've been a caregiver for four years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because my cousin had a stroke and became disabled. I really enjoyed doing that and taking care of him. Also, I cared for my grandma when she became disabled. So, this is something that I really enjoy doing and that I can help.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be, if you really don't want to do it, don't do it. But if you have a passion for it, then this is the right job for you.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget is Alcaljer, who is my younger cousin. He was 16 when he had a stroke and he is 19 now and still in a coma.
