Hi, my name is Sharrity. I live in Los Angeles, CA and I have 5 years of experience as a caregiver.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I enjoy helping others as well as providing companionship, getting them to the proper care that they need in order to remain as independent as possible.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to have patience, as well as pay attention to detail. Most important thing is to listen to what the client wants.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I will never forget - Melvin. He's very sweet, he was very generous. He was demanding at times but, to me, it was good because he knew what he wanted. He very rarely complained as long as you complied with everything he wanted.
